For this math scavenger, I created a math assignment sign in and out sheet. With so many resources students are using of yours it can teach responsibility for students to sign out the activity students are using and then sign in back in. It also helps you keep up with your things and where they are. Use an expo marker for students to write who is using what, the time, and the date. check it frequently to make sure students are signing in and out. IMG_6809
