Sticky Practice Quiz Questions
March 26, 2014
I use sticky notes to assign problems to students when reviewing for a quiz or test. I start by writing math problems on the smart board and assigning a number to each problem. I write numbers for each question on the on the back of a sticky note and stick them to my door. I make one sticky note for each student, and if I don’t have enough questions for each student, I put smiley faces on the extras.
Students grab a sticky note on their way in to my classroom and then look on the back to see which problem they are responsible for solving. Students with a smiley face can solve a problem of their choice if they really want to go to the board and do one, or they can choose to not do a question and sit back and observe. They can also be used by other students to “phone a friend.”
This method works really well and makes it random as to who gets which question. This method can also be used to group students, etc. I go through a lot of sticky notes in a year!
