This is a useful strategy presented in recipe card format as are all of my strategies. A homemade take on Show Don't Say (actions speak louder than words) I titled it Poll the Pops because Pops. was an abbreviation for population and the paddles I shaped like popsicle or lollipops which when held up on the colored side of choice give me a good indication of what the class (population) is thinking at that moment in time. Definitely a formative assessment trick up the proverbial sleeve. I make one Popsicle for each student and used the double colored index cards here. Don't be surprised if you get them back with a bite out of them...those darn kids/teachers!
