Are you looking for a way to make multiple choice questions more interactive? These answer cards have fun characters that kids like and make formative assessment easy for you. Simply ask a question and have every student in class respond by holding up a number 1-4, or letter (a, b, c, or d). I found this system worked better than whiteboards (kids can't waste markers by writing irrelevant things and you don't have to manage erasers) and it makes a fun change from holding up fingers.
Preparing the number and letter cards:
Each page makes 2 answer cards, so cut the page in half vertically. Then, fold vertically in half, on the dotted lines. Laminate. You should have 1 and 2 on one side of the rectangle, and 3 and 4 on the other side. The even numbers should appear upside down, and alternating letters should appear upside down.
Directions for student use:
Decide if you are going to use number cards or letter cards for an activity. When a child holds up the card, the right side up character should be on top, facing you.
You might choose to make one answer card for every student, or one for each group. If you have 5 groups and make 5 cards, choose one child from each group to hold a card for one "round." They could represent an entire group of students sitting with them. For the next question, have them pass the number off to a different student in their groups until everyone has had a turn.
