Exit Tickets

I found this on Pinterest and knew immediately that I was doing it.  The idea originally comes from  Cortney at Once Upon a Substitute and is another "why didn't I think of that" type ideas.  I like exit tickets and a long time ago I designed ones that looked like real tickets.  I like to keep a stack of them photocopied so they're always ready if I need them.  Sometime I might plan to use one, but they're great to use when the lesson goes quicker than I expected and I need to fill a few minutes at the end of the period.

This takes the idea of keeping them on hand one step further. Laminate them and make dry erase exit tickets!  This way I always have them on hand, and I'll never have to make more copies.  Why didn't I think of this??

I created these blank tickets and printed enough for a class set on cardstock paper.  At the moment I'm considering printing more so that I have enough for each student, that way I won't have to read and erase them each period.

[Update]: I ended up printing out enough tickets for each of my students.  Often when I collect exit tickets I don't look at them until the end of the day so I decided that making a class set and trying to read and erase them each period just wasn't reasonable for me.

I laminated them all...

then cut them all apart.
