Calling On Students
Submitted by: Sharon Riddle, 1st Grade

On or before the first day of school, I paint each child's name on a tongue depressor with colorful puff paint. These "sticks" are kept in a small pail on my desk. I use them to "call on students", pick a line leader, decide who will read next, the 7 people who get to be up for "7-up", etc. Each stick is left out of the pail after it is chosen until all sticks are picked. That way everyone gets a chance to do something, and I don't inadvertently call on the same children who raise their hands first all the time. Then the sticks are placed back in the pail and I start all over again.
