This is Sharon Sheep.Whenever it's time to share after a Think-Pair-Share we get out the Sharon Sheep. Sharon is thrown to students with raised hands and only the chosen ones can share their thoughts.
You may have noticed that this is an elephant and not a sheep. When she was first introduced, Sharon was all I had. I try my hardest, each time I introduce her, to convince the students that she is a sheep and not an elephant. They all protest when I say, "Let's get out Sharon. She's a sheep." Many times, after the first time, students yell, "She's an elephant, not a sheep." They protest until we get a visitor, then they all try to convince the guest that Sharon is a sheep, and not an elephant. Now that's FUN! Don't tell anyone.
