Each week, we'll be posting a series of ideas on different household objects. We'll post a new linky each week so if you're a blogger, share your post on this week's topic (popsicle sticks) and link up. If you aren't, we'd love to hear your ideas in the comments below. We'll be sharing ideas for things like clothespins, aluminum cans, and paint strips.
The idea I'm going to share with you is not a new one, but I'm hoping that my tweaks on it will give new ideas to a person or two.
I use popsicle sitcks as name calling sticks. I put a piece of washi tape on one end and write the students' names on the stick. I put them in a cup either washi side up or washi side down. Then after the student has been called, the washi goes the opposite direction. This helps me to make sure everyone has a chance before someone gets a second chance.
I've also used popsicle sticks with my whole class reward system. You can read more about it by clicking the image below.
