Show Me Wallet

For years, my children have been writing on whiteboards and we've played the "1,2,3...Show Me" game.  I've always liked it, and so have they, but there are always the kids that keep peeking and changing their answers to what they see on someone else's board.  This "Show Me Wallet" keeps them from being able to peak!  I love it!  Props to Beth Estill (again).  She gave us the idea of the "Show Me Wallet".  I've taken her idea and put it on steroids.  You can use these bad boys in any subject.  Click here for all the documents to download.  All you have to do is get some cardstock of different colors and do some serious photocopying and laminating.  These are great for test review, or a quick formative assessment!  Enjoy!

Show on.

  4. Wow, thank you for sharing your hard work!! I work at a private school that has a curriculum that is largely based on seatwork. This past year, we as a staff, were trained and expected to "involve" the students more by completing active participation - "ALL THE STUDENTS, ALL THE TIME." I am all about hands-on and love this new push from the administration. Anyway, I am so excited to use this wallet, it will help me tremendously and involve all the students! I copied, laminated, and cut feverishly today! Can't wait to show my vice-principal! THANK YOU SO MUCH, you will make me look good, but no worries, you will get all the glory! :)

  5. These are so great - thank you for sharing. My district is going through so many changes...CCSS/new assessments/admin changes...this will be a great tool to help keep me on top of where the kids are. I"m going now to purchase supplies !-)


  6. Totally cool!!! Great idea!!!

  7. This is a neat idea especially since formative assessments are the new thing (lol). Students are always and I do mean always changing their answer and this is a cost efficient way of getting them to really keep their answer.

  8. This content is written very well. Your use of formatting when making your points makes your observations very clear and easy to understand. Thank you.
