QUIZ IN ART?
When my 5th graders got "chatty" this week, I said to them in the nicest way I could muster up, "I don't think you know what to do because you weren't listening. I'm just going to check to make sure everyone is ready to start their clay project." I started passing out these quiz's. "No no no, we are ready!" "Oh, Okay. . . then show me." Right when the chatter started up again while I was teaching, the quiz went right to those offenders and it stops pretty quickly. Class went smoothly and most understood the concepts and made an awesome clay sandal! I am so proud of them (and me for finding this trick in my book:)
Sidenote: Next class we all took the quiz and did a raffle for a prize the quiz was their ticket. Some did better then others (it's always the quiet ones.) I got to see there are some things I need to reteach to certain individuals!
