Okay. So I don't know what most teachers would call them, but I FINALLY made student sticks. My definition of student sticks: sticks in a can used by a teacher to call randomly on students, preferrably those not paying attention or participating. I decorated my can (which previously housed artichoke hearts, yum) with black grosgrain ribbon. I had to make it cute somehow! Anyway, I had avoided making them all year thinking it was too elementary, but it made a world of difference today in class! It forced me to call on the students I KNOW don't have the answer, which I definitely did not do before. Below is a really bad picture, but you get the idea. Happy crafting!
