So, rather than having that awkward moment of silence, I have decided to give the kids some alternative answers to the "I don't know" that they tend to fall back on when they are confused or just not paying attention! I have seen something like this in another classroom, and I thought it was fabulous...so I thought I would try it for my kiddos!
I am making a display for the wall for the first few months of school, but I am also making smaller cards on a ring to put in each pod bucket for the kids to reference when they need to.
This is what they look like:
You can get a copy to use in your classroom here ! To make the smaller cards, I set my printer settings to print multiple pages per sheet of paper. I thought that 4 pages per sheet was the perfect size. I also recommend laminating them for protection!
