Use Reflection Signs to Sum Up & Celebrate Learning

Use Reflection Signs to Sum Up & Celebrate Learning
  1. Circle Up:
    Students stand in a circle and hold up their reflection sign.
  2. Exit Ticket: The exit ticket for the class requires students to come up individually or in pairs holding up their reflection sign for a photo opp, then place it on the end-of-study bulletin board.

Here are the signs posted on the bulletin board.

How might you use this activity as an icebreaker? Perhaps there is a question you ask at the beginning of a learning even that people respond to in the same way. It could be interesting to see the responses at the beginning verses the end. The other benefit with this type of icebreaker is it honors both introverts and extroverts and contributes something meaningful to the learning experience
