Ticket Out the Door!

Hello bloggy friends!
I just wanted to share a little poster I made for my exit tickets.  I saw several of these floating around Pinterest, but decided to jazz mine up a bit!  I love giving the students a problem to solve or a "ticket out the door."  Not only is is motivational, and gets them working,  it is a great way to assess learning in a quick way.  I put a problem or question on the board, and the kiddos answer on a 3 x 3 sticky note.  On the way out, they place the sticky on their corresponding number.  Also a quick way for me to check who completed the task as well.

I made my chart using a standard black poster board and some colored paper.  I cut the paper squares into 3-1/2" squares and glued those puppies down.  I used a 1" round punch for the circles and wrote the numbers with a good 'ol Sharpie.  Then I laminated the whole thing.  (I love to laminate!)   Easy-peasy and the kiddos think it is super cool.  They actually beg me to give them "tickets" out the door!

  5. I've done this "exit ticket" idea in the past, but it has been a "verbal" ticket out...I love this! Also, I have never been a fan of "student numbers" but I believe I have changed my mind! Thanks for helping me do this!

  6. I love this! I have always done it verbally, but kids always love a post it note! Thanks for sharing.

  7. I want to start doing this! Love the idea!!! I have a hollywood themed classroom, so would LOVE to make one in red. How do you get the color border around the title and what is the specific font? Thanks for sharing!!

  8. Just finished making mine!! Thanks for the idea!!

  9. definitely stealing this!! love the idea... thanks :-)

  10. I'm so excited to make this. What an organized way to double-check my kiddos.

  11. Why do teacher's have to buy things from teacher's pay teachaer's? Why can't we just share to share?????

  12. How do you laminate the whole poster? What machine do you use?

  13. do you number the student desks? i teach high school and have five sections of classes. i guess numbering the desks would be the easiest way to keep track...
