Pick Me Pot

by Lori Donovan
(Fredericton, NB, Canada)

My children accused me of not fairly choosing students to answer, speak, take turns, etc.

I had read about using namecards to randomly choose but wanted to expand on that.

I got a flower pot and one of those fabric flowers (like you win at fairs) that I glued into the pot.

I used tongue depressors with each student's name and then placed them upside down in the pot.

Now when I need volunteers, etc I just go to the 'Pick Me' pot.

Once all students names have been used I put them back and start again.

They love it so much they often use the 'Pick Me' pot to choose partners, etc.

I'm impressed by your story. In fact, students is very important part of everyone's life. However, sometimes it's very hard to succeed in academic life. Students have a lot of incomprehensible tasks to complete but they have a chance to get successful if they use professional writing help. http://academic-writings.com/.

Pick Me name cards
by: Anonymous

I have been using the pick me name cards for about four years. I like the name cards and I decorate them with stickers. This also helps with letter and name recognition. The children learn each other names.

Later as their handwriting improves, I let them create their own name cards to use in this activity.

This is also good for when there is a substitute teacher.

Great

That is a very good idea. Children always want to be first and do not yet understand that everyone must take turns! Do you try to use all of the flowers in one day? Again I love this idea,and I am very sure I will use this in the future to keep things fair! Thnks
