I was skimming through Twitter this weekend when I came across this fun post from @mraspinall . It was an emoji exit ticket! How fun!

This student clearly made a smart partner choice:
Some students benefitted from having a hands-on learning experience:

Stayin' cool like the kids,
We're glad you're here!
