PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Use cue cards to direct student behavior and expectations.

If you're like me, there are times when you've asked students to raise their hands for a question, and then the next time encouraged a group response. I realized I was allowing students to answer some questions as a class, then expecting them to know when they were supposed to go back to answering one-at-a-time.

I finally decided to use a cue card system to let students know when and how I wanted them to answer questions during the mini-lesson. I was surprised at how well it worked. :>) Simply point to a card -- and the students knew exactly what to do.

CARD 1: Shhhh..... No one talks. Just listen.

CARD 2: Partners ...... Turn and discuss with a partner.

CARD 3: Hands, please ..... Raise your hand; wait to respond.

CARD 4: Freetime Talk ...... Your teacher is taking care of a "situation" -- you have a few minutes of Freetime Talk; speak quietly.

CARD 5: Discussion ..... Small groups, or class discussion. You may speak without raising your hand, but try not to talk when someone else is speaking.

CARD 6: Think ..... Don't answer right away. Think it through (or) Listen while I explain.

If no card is designated, students are free to respond as a class (Review: 2+3 ....Class: 5!!)

There are several designs included in the document; I've found that printing on yellow card stock usually gives the cards the best "punch."

INSTRUCTIONS: Print on card stock (white, yellow or fluorescent colors), trim and laminate. Put TACK-IT restickable glue or magnets on the backs of each card for magnetic whiteboards. Place on the board ready for use.
