Passing out Papers will Never be the Same

Teachers STOP passing out papers. Instead, lets have our students pass out papers. Actually, have our students throw out the papers into the air to the rest of the class. Pick a student at random, and have him/her throw the papers into the air (not at other students) and all of the papers go everywhere. Most students will quickly get up and go over and get their paper. If it is a worksheet, they just have to go over and pick up one. Some students will want to ask other students to get their paper. Try and encourage all to get out of their seats. It promotes a good movement brain break.
**For tests and quizzes, I still encourage teachers to pass out these.
