Your favorite formative assessments?

There's a real push for using more formative assessments in my school. I teach 6th grade English and it isn't as easy to do quick assessments in class. I do use "thumbs up/down", exit tickets, numbered heads together, stir the class, etc....but would love to know everyone's favorite ways for formative assessment in middle school (especially if it allows some movement). TIA

I've attached Stir the Class in case you haven't used it before and to start the ball rolling. Would love this to be a thread we can all use to add in more formative assessment and shake things up a bit.

My favorite is simple Exit Tickets. I've done them on post it notes and on the computer. It's usually based on something they've learned class.

I love this thread! I'm always looking to implement more formative assessment.

I teach 7th and 8th grade science, and these are 2 that I've been using a lot lately:

-Turn and teach. Students are partner A or B (I usually try to have them determine who is partner A and B with a goofy prompt, like "The person who has the most pets at home is partner A.") They will teach either a section of a reading or a new concept to their partner.

-Plickers (whenever I remember to add a question before class begins :P)
