You Oughta Know About...Exit Tickets


It's that time again! I'm linking up with the fabulous Jasmine McClain for the You Oughta Know Blog Hop.  I love this blog hop because I always find tons of fantastic ideas from a great group of bloggers.  This month I really think you oughta know about Exit Tickets.  As a kindergarten teacher I always thought of exit tickets as something for the older grades, but let me tell you that ALL students can use the, even the littlest learners!

  • To provide closure to lesson
  • To allow time for student reflection on learning
  • To gather evidence of student understanding


  • Whole group to get information about whole class understanding
  • Small group to get information about small group lesson
  • To quickly determine which students have it, which ones need a little help, and which ones will need more instruction
  • Guide planning of future lessons based on responses
  • Add to student portfolios as evidence of learning/progress
  • Send home to parents so they can see what they are doing at school
  • Use responses as starting point for lesson, asking students if the response shows understanding of the concept or if the student needs to rethink their response

General Reflection:

  • What are 3 things you learned today?
  • What is one question you still have?
  • What do you need more practice with?
  • Rate your understanding of _______ from 1-10.
  • The most important thing I learned today is...
  • I need help with...
  • I would like to learn more about...

Content Based:

  • Choose a particular concept/standard to assess understanding

For example I created Exit Tickets for each of the Math Common Core State Standards in Kindergarten and First Grade.  You can view them here:
Kindergarten

 
 


First Grade:


 


Differentiating:

  • Exit slips can be differentiated for english language learners, students with varying reading abilities, students with learning disabilities, different levels of students and young students. Here are some ideas for differentiating:
  • Have a variety of exit tickets available
  • Allow students to work on exit tickets in pairs or groups
  • Allow students to respond verbally

I hope you find ways to use this fantastic resource in your classroom.  Don't forget to check out awesome ideas you oughta know about from these teachers:

  3. Love this post! Using exit tickets is actually a requirement for our lessons so I use them often. Sometimes I make my own, but thankfully our Eureka Math books have exit tickets after each lesson which is a plus! Thanks for sharing and thanks for signing up for the blog hop this month :-)
