Fun Ways to Dismiss Your Class
I am always looking for new ways to dismiss my class. Whether we are going from the carpet area back to our desks or from our desks to the carpet area or from either place to the door, I don’t want my students rushing in a big mob to where they are asked to go. To avoid this I
always usually have my students go a few at a time. To add fun to this transition I have a variety of criteria for who gets to go when.
An example is, I say “If you had cereal for breakfast then go _________.” Those student move and then I continue. “If you had _________ for breakfast then go ________.” and so on until all students are lined up.
The 25 options I use the most are:
Month in which they were born
Beginning letter of first/last
Number of vowels in first name
How they got to school (bus, walk, bike, car)
Favorite ice cream flavor
Favorite school subject
First letter of middle name
Number of syllables in last
Color of pants/skirt/shorts
Color of shirt
Color of hair
Color of eyes
Color of coat at school
Color of shoes
Type of ties on shoes (Velcro, laces, none)
Type of shirt (short/long-sleeve, color, buttons)
Length of hair
Number of brothers/sisters
19.) Color of socks
What they ate for breakfast
What they ate for lunch
Number of family members living
in their house
Type of pet
Number of pets
Movies they have seen
I have compiled the 25 different options on one page that you can print out to have on hand. You can get them by clicking here.
I hope this helps you have smooth transitions in your classroom!
