These little round joys of delight are called Hootycreeks. They. Are. AMAZING! They have cranberries, oats and pecans in them....so I like to pretend they are healthy. And I may or may not eat them for breakfast....
Besides eating my body weight in cookies, I worked on ELA exit slips for my kiddos. If you don't currently use exit slips.....you totally should! Exit slips provide an extremely quick (what teacher doesn't like quick??) way to see if your students are comprehending what they have read. This strategy is perfect for giving you (the teacher) immediate feedback and it will also help you students by providing them a way to think about what they have learned. And as a bonus....exit slips work perfect for all text types!
Here is what the front side of the exit slips looks like:
The exit slip uses a simple 3, 2, 1 strategy. When you are ready to wrap up your lesson spend 3 to 5 minutes and have students write 3 things they learned, 2 new words they discovered and 1 remaining question they have.
The back side looks like this:
On the back side you can ask students a specific question about the lesson, or choose from the list of questions below.

Hope you all had a great weekend!!! :)
