  1. Laura I love the name of your Take Turns Bucket! It is so great that you are able to take the pins out and clip them so that you are sure everyone gets a turn. Great idea:)

  2. Great idea! I always use sticks and one always seems to get lost. Where did you get your specials signs. I love them. Thanks for the tip!

  3. Hi Laura! What a great teacher tip. I like to have a variety of ways to randomly choose students in the classroom. Love the whole idea of keeping track of who is chosen by clipping the clothespin on the side of the container. Thanks for the tip!

  4. What a great tip! It makes sure that everyone gets a chance!

  5. I do a similar thing but my bucket is an ugly old basket... time to spruce things up a bit like you did! : )

  6. Laura, thanks for the great tip! I will definitely be using this idea this year for my class and for our weekly class merger. =-)

  7. What an awesome spin on choosing "sticks"!

  8. Ah-ha! I LOVE (though feel slightly dense) when another teacher comes along and simplifies something you've done for years. :) This will be so much better than having popsicle sticks all over my desk.
