Any student who has ever been in my class LOVES paper turn in day. Any teacher who has ever seen me present knows why. Because I turn paper collecting into a full Olympic activity. Gone are the days of turn in bins. Forget passing papers forward. Goodbye to have a student collect homework. My friends, it is time to turn the art of gathering assignments into a motivational activity that I call the paper collection race! I stretch. Then I sprint! Literally avoiding obstacles, binders, and anything else in my way, I run around my classroom to collect work of 28 students in under 13 seconds. Biggest time saver ever. I also mentally and visually track who is actually turning in work as I run. (Teachers know how to multitask with the best of them) Here is a screen shot of a video of me mid sprint. Don’t worry an actual video is coming soon! Stay Tuned! Got a great way to collect papers? I want to hear about it!
