Exit Tickets are all the rage and understandably so! It's so very important that we as teachers know at what level of understanding our students are at. Exit Tickets are wonderful for this because they are quick and save us more time that we could use to teach...
Now think about using these at the other end of learning; what about using these ticket BEFORE teaching? Thus, the Enter Tickets! They have all the same benefits of Exit Tickets: quick, easy to administer and grade, and they drive our teaching. But the beauty of an Enter Ticket is that you will save even more precious teaching time you might be wasting on those students that already know and understand the focus skill being taught! So many times we focus on those students that don't understand, but what about those that do? Let's push them further quicker, by not wasting their precious learning time! Enter Tickets will help you to do just that. Your teaching will be more focused and you'll be able to provide more to more students in the long run.
Included in this first edition of my Enter Tickets is a set of Rhyming Tickets. Each ticket focuses on one word family and it is indicated in the corner of the ticket. There are four tickets on one page, cutting down on copying costs. I've also included dashed cutting lines to make for easy cutting; one cut across and one down and that's it. In addition, you'll receive a table you can keep track of which students have already mastered which skill.
You can also use these for exit tickets if you wish, which adds to all the benefits of these tickets!
Be on the look out for next editions of my Enter Tickets, including syllabication and CVC words!
