Transformations Exit Cards description
Print this file on large index cards and laminate for year after year use. Exit cards 2-8 displays the different types of the transformations. Exit cards 9-21 presents types of transformations that the student must identify and describe. Expect differential answers depending on the academic level of the child. Academic challenge should be allowed to exit after identification (i.e. reflection or flip). The academic achieving student should describe the transformation (i.e. rotation of 180° counter-clockwise/clockwise). Card 22 is for you to cut and paste answers on the exit cards because a sharpie will bleed through. Cards 23-24 includes answers for cards 25-32 exit questions.
Note: My philosophy for exit cards. You should have exit cards to cover the big concepts of each quarter. Exit cards are a tool and not a lesson. If you have a co-teacher, educational assistant (have the EA review the answers before quizzing the students) just print an extra set for them. If you have about 30 students it will take about ten minutes to exit all of the students. I normally will end the class five minutes early when it is followed by a recess, lunch or last class of the day. This way I will use five minutes of my time and five minutes of the student’s time and they are not late for their next class. We rotate our schedule so each period is at a different time each day.
