Are you using exit slips? They are a great way to informally & quickly assess whether students understood your lesson or not. This is a quick and easy way to manage them!
I like use different colors of Post Its for my different groups. Makes it easier for me to see which groups or grades wrote what.
I needed a way to do a quick check with my groups to see if they were understanding our word work. We do our word work the first few minutes and then move on to our reading. I just hand out Post Its right before they leave and they do a quick check over their word work.
As they walk out the door, the students stick their notes on the door. Easy for me then to scan the door and see who "got it" and who didn't! Plus, since I have them do it at the end of the lesson, I am stretching my little strugglers' brains to remember what they learned by building their memory skills. Something they struggle with a lot.
These Show What You Know can really show you who is ready to move on to the next skill and who isn't. One thing I have found is that the off brand of Post Its do not stay stuck like the name brand does.
To put another spin on exit slips, I have students do a quick check on our wipe off tables. We were working on cvc words here. The kids love to write on the tables!!
