Do you have a problem encouraging ALL your students to participate in class? Do you want to make sure you are calling on everyone and not letting a few students do all the talking?
You're in luck! I have the perfect tip for you today!
Buy some popsicle sticks. Write each child's name on a stick. Keep all sticks in a cup or basket.
When you're ready for a discussion, start pulling sticks and calling on those students. Don't put their name back in until every child has had a chance to participate.
It definitely encourages students to pay attention because they never know when they're going to be called on.
It also helps me make sure students are participating and understanding the lesson.
How do you make sure you are not calling on the same students all the time?
