Monitoring Student Understanding

As I was trying to figure out what I wanted to do for this month's Bright Idea post, I came across this simple and effective tool in the fourth grade teachers' classrooms.

Each student has a small ring of three cards as pictured. As students are working, they self-monitor and flip to the card that describes their level of needed assistance from the teacher. The rings stay on top of their desks so the teacher can quickly glance to see who needs immediate help and who can wait a bit.
