Exit Cards

The end of the lesson is as important as the start, although you wouldn’t think that from my planning – or execution! While I plan great starts, warm ups, lead-ins etc the end of the lesson is usually accompanied by me yelling last minute instructions to my students as they bolt to their next class, still clutching the last worksheet I flung at them!

This is why I love exit cards, particularly all-purpose exit cards like these, just stick them on cards and let students pick from a hat 10 minutes before the end of a lesson, or use them for homework.
