Ms. Durning posted some excellent exit slips recently (see her post and fantastic blog here!). I have to thank her, because they have helped me make more of an effort to use them with my kids.
We've been using them in math and science this past week and they have been a wonderful way to wrap up lessons (plus, I love the accountability for all students!).
I wanted to make a pocket to store them in by our door. So I decided to laminate, fold, and staple a paper to hold them (kind of like the Notes to the Nurse pocket I made). I ended up making 3 different versions of the sign...just because it's fun to have a choice! You can skip to the bottom of this post to access the files (different versions are labeled in the image to the left). I'm planning on using a combination of the slips Ms. Durning made, plus some larger ones with lines for my students who are just learning to write in English.
Here is how I made the pocket:
I glued the sign onto black paper, then folded the paper to make the pockets.
I made a cut in the middle of the fold, to separate the paper into two pockets (with my favorite paper cutter!!).
Then I laminated the whole thing.
I stapled the outer and inner edges of the pockets.
And the final result!
I put some labels on to, so the students would know where to put their finished slips.
Here are the files (the image back at the beginning of the post shows the different versions you can choose from).

What do you do for exit slips or end of lesson routines?
