I am so excited to be joining up with a big ole bunch of awesome bloggers to share an idea for the Bright Ideas blog hop.
Today I wanted to share about my multiple choice fans. (I have talked about them in the past) I don't know about your school/district, but ours seems to always be in a budget pinch. When that's the case, we get great materials to work with BUT they cannot be written in so they can be used over. So, a couple of years ago I came up with my multiple choice fans.
I use these almost daily in my small groups. We have several great books with multiple choice reading comprehension questions in them. We will read the passage in our small group and then when it comes time for answering the questions, they each get a "fan". The fans have A,B,C,D on one side and F,G,H,I on the other. Then they can answer the question and show me and I can do a quick assessment of who gets it and who doesn't.
Here's what you need to make your own:)
I love the colorful sticks!
Washers, nuts, and bolts.
My husband drilled little holes and then we put the sticks together with nuts, washers, and bolts.
You can just as easily make one stick for each child:)
I HIGHLY recommend that which ever you do, after you apply the sticker, cover it with a layer of mod podge. That will make it last so much longer. If not, the sticker peels right off.
Either way, they are great to use in small groups. The kids love them and are having fun as they're learning:) Hope these are something fun you can use. Be sure to grab a pencil and notepad to jot down all the great ideas you will find at this linky.
