Give me a thumbs up if you have heard it/thumbs down if you have not heard it. Give me a wave if you have used it. Knock once if you have ELL students in your classroom. Dribble a basketball if you have heard about Common Core Academic Standards. Tap your shoulder if you would rather assess students while you’re teaching than during your own time. Give me a Rattlesnake Shake if you have students in your class who always raises their hand to share and others who rarely raise their hand to share.

It’s your turn…what can you do with your students tomorrow? What do you want to make for your students next week? What would you like more information about?
Don’t use them all at once. The goal is to get students engaged, identify those who are not engaged, be able to quickly assess students knowledge of skills…not their knowledge of which TPR they are suppose to do!
Jump a rope if you can use this technique with your students. Lasso a cow if you plan on using it. Raise the Roof if you think your students have too many paper assessments they have to take. Lower the Floor if you might share this with a colleague.
