The dreaded words: "I don't have a pencil, OH and can I use the bathroom and get a drink of a water?" These will no longer be as big of an issue with these handy passes/tickets.
This resource works best in a middle school classroom.
At the beginning of each trimester, students are given two pencil passes and two bathroom/water passes. For a total of 4 possible extra credit points at the end of the trimester. If they need a pencil, they simply fill out their ticket, turn it in, and grab a pencil. They must return the pencil at the end of class. It is the same procedure for the bathroom/water passes. They just have to sign out from class using a clipboard when they leave the room.
I have included the PDF version and a link to the editable electronic google doc version, so you can edit it to your liking. Enjoy!
