Glitter Boards

You may remember the Glitter Boards I made a few weeks ago:


You can see them here as well:


I use them as exit tickets.  I write down a sight word, math problem, science or social studies word, etc. and in order to be able to leave or go on to the next activity, the kiddos have to give me the answer or read me the word or tell me the definition. IMG_1849

Here we were using them to change beginning sounds in words. IMG_1850On this board, we were practicing our old and new sight words.  You can see where I differentiated for different learners.  I want to make sure all the kiddos have success so that they see this as a fun activity.

I usually keep one of these on my easel and one by the door.  When we have a few minutes after lining up, I write something on the board and either go down the line to get an answer or hold it up and tell the kiddos to raise their hand when they know the answer.

It cost me about $6 for all the materials–the frames are from IKEA for $3.00 each and I got the glitter paper from Stampin’ Up!  ( I sell Stampin’ Up! if you’re interested!) 🙂
