About Exit Tickets for Primary (K-2) Math Games

Because there are four games to play with each card set, you'll get four exit tickets, each labeled with a game name. Just hand out the one that applies. After a game, the student can write what they learned and what they liked best. Or, the teacher or aide can use exit tickets to record a few of the common responses from students.

For upper elementary and middle grades, each exit ticket has four parts:
• Part A: Students mark checkboxes for game(s) they played with the cards.
• Part B: Students explain what they learned or liked best.
• Part C (optional): Students can design four other cards with matching values or models.
• Part D (optional): Students explain their cards from Part C.

Exit Tickets Help With Accountability and Future Lesson Plans

If students know that they will need to complete an exit ticket, they may pay more attention to the game. Plus, you'll have a written record of their participation.  Although exit tickets are not generally graded, the responses can help you adjust plans for future games. After you collect and read the tickets, you may want to make notes for these questions.
• Which students struggled with the game?
• Which students found the game too easy?
• If students designed their own cards, did their cards actually match and show understanding of the concept?
• Did students comment about having too much or too little time?
You may want to adjust the time or try a different card game the next time you use the same set of math cards. If students struggled, consider having those students work with a volunteer or more advanced student to learn to match the cards. If some students designed more challenging cards, you can include those cards in a modified set for your next game day!
