I have seen this implemented in three ways:
1) You change out the one page paper as the next one is added
2) As each child is selected, you fill up a section of the room with one for each student
3) As each student is selected, one more page is added to a book and once all students have been selected, they each receive a copy of all of their classmates sheets and can keep it and reference it for years to come!

Life Line Guidelines:
Each student gets one of each (3 total) of the lifelines. Their names will be on the back, and they are to hold on to them (laminate if possible). Each time they use one, the teacher collects it. If they don’t use any of them during the month, then the teacher will buy them back for that month for two tickets per life line unused (or some sort of treat). If the students do use their life line and would like to buy it back, they may for the price of two tickets. If the students lose their lifeline, they may buy them back at the cost of two tickets per life line. The teacher will also use a list of students to keep track of who uses theirs. The students who bought theirs back after using it will not be rewarded with the two tickets (or the treat) for that life line at the end of the month.
This behavior management system can be set up in any class to keep kids on task, paying attention, and to give students a safe way to protect themselves if they are caught not paying attention or simply not knowing information
**Can be adapted to a challenging review game as an informal assessment to show if students have or have not studied.
