Well, how about keeping hold of them so you and your students can look back on them to see progress over time? (Those of you in the UK will know that OFSTED, school inspectors, look out for evidence of this in particular!).
You can either print them onto coloured paper or leave them black and white for students to personalise and decorate as they wish, great for allowing them to take ownership of their work.
Each of these exit tickets come in 10 different styles and 3 different sizes: the largest takes up a whole page and these are ideal for stapling on Interactive Bulletin Boards where students can flip and read personal responses!
And as always, these are all my own hand drawn clip art so are completely unique, just for you:
These ones also come in 10 styles and 3 different sizes: the giant emojis look particularly striking on the wall!
- Students writing down their thoughts ensures they are really having to think about their learning. It's all too easy for some students to fall under the radar if they're not all documenting something.
- It also means you can check each student's response. Whole group questioning has its benefits, but it won't tell you what they know as individuals.
- Writing enables students to go back and reflect on their progress. They can look back at what they wanted to improve on in previous lessons and actually take action. If they write a great reflection or goal for improvement but then never see it again, much of the value is lost.
- Writing down success and understanding is a great confidence booster for the students.
