Participation Cards I

Found in: pairing and grouping; student participation

At the beginning of the year, I have each student write his/her name on an index card. Throughout the year, I draw cards for seating assignments, forming cooperative groups, calling on students to read, pairing up for games, choosing science helpers, and virtually anything that involves choosing kids for activities. This method seems to appeal to their sense of fairness and eliminates the frantic hand raising and disappointment when they are not chosen.
