HAND SIGNAL IDEA POSTER DESCRIPTION:
This is a visual to remind students to point up to the stars when they have a "STAR IDEA!" In our classroom, a "STAR IDEA" is when a student has a great idea and they want to let the teacher and his/her classmates know this. There are many times when we, as teachers, really want to hear all of students' ideas, but time just doesn't allow for it. This hand motion of pointing to the stars allows students to feel a sense of contribution, even when time doesn't allow for their full contribution to a class discussion.
This also has proven to decrease the urges to "call out" an answer in our classroom!
