Exit Slips with Sticky Notes

I love to use sticky notes in my class and I have a big basket of different sizes and colors of sticky notes for my students to pick and choose from.  I tend to buy them at the dollar stores or anywhere I can find them on sale as I do know they can get expensive.

Here's a quick trick to use sticky notes as Exit Slips.  A few minutes before the end of the class I'll pass out a sticky note to each student and ask them a question.  They must post their responses (with their name) on the whiteboard on the way out.

Here are some of the questions I might ask:

- What were the two most important points in today's lesson / class?
- What are two questions you have about today's lesson?
- What stuck with you today as being important?
- What are two things you wonder / would like to learn more about?
- What were two big ideas from today's in-class video?

Here are some links to my other blog posts that involved sticky notes (did I mention that I love them!!)

 Happy Sticky Noting!


  1. Such a simple suggestion, but so useful. I can already see it by my classroom door with a box of sticky notes beside it. It's a great thing for the kids to do while they are waiting in line for transitions, too. ~Stacy @ http://new-in-room-202.blogspot.com

  2. I love stickies as well and my students do enjoy using them - especially for note taking. I need to be using exit slips more often, though. Thanks for the reminder Addie!


  3. Thanks for linking up with the Blog by Province Linky....your button looks great! I love your ideas for test prep. We have EQAO here in the late spring and I have been making up some test prep materials myself. Hope you are having a great week and that your weather is better than ours here in ON.

  4. I found your blog through the All Things Upper Elementary Linky! It's nice to meet another Canadian Blogger. Thanks for your freebies :)

  5. I usually use scrap pieces of paper because I am so cheap. :) But now seeing your colorful board with the exit slips written on sticky notes-well, I'm off to buy some sticky notes!!!!


  6. Cute idea Addie! Thanks for popping over to my poetry linky! It is great to follow a blogger just as passionate about teaching as I am!
