Sign-in is part of the daily morning structure and routine. Students are asked to respond to a daily question that reflects some part of a curricular activity, a community event or is connected to a particular homework assignment.
A daily sign-in question starts each day. Students read the question, read the responses of their peers, and compose a unique answer. The question may be in response to the previous night’s homework or a study the class is involved in, or it may require students to think on their feet. 3-4-5 students usually answer the sign-in question in a complete sentence, giving students valuable practice composing a response.
