This month, I am sharing my Ask Me Cup.
I put everyone's name in the cup and I use it during my whole group lessons, to be sure I call on everyone, and not just the same few kids who always raise their hand.
In addition to the children's names, I also have some cards labeled "Teacher's Choice". If I choose one, then I can call on anyone I want, including those who already had a turn. This way, the children don't think that, since their name was already chosen, they can stop paying attention.
I also use this cup whenever I need to choose a child for something. This way, I can blame the ask me cup when children complain they didn't get called on. No blood on my hands! LOL! (Yes! I do watch Big Brother!)
Here's another one of my Ask Me Cups!
I hope you enjoyed my idea this month.
Have fun hopping through all the blogs linked up below!
