TEACHERS ARE OFTEN INTERRUPTED BY STUDENTS ASKING TO USE THE BATHROOM
Using the restroom is a basic need, but restroom trips are also a common avoidance tactic students will use when they want a break from a lesson or academic task. You need to develop a procedure and set expectations that prevent students from having accidents while at the same time not enabling them to use the bathroom as an “escape.” This tool works perfectly for managing trips to the restroom without causing distractions to your lessons.

THE BENEFITS OF THIS RESOURCE:
The bathroom card management system has been used successfully by hundreds of teachers since I first shared it on my blog in 2012. It's great because...
✓ It allows you to keep track of who is out of the room. In the event of a fire drill, lock down drill or other emergency procedure you can see at a glance where your students are.
✓ They can be copied onto any colored card stock or paper to complement your classroom theme or color scheme.
✓ When used in conjunction with my hand signals management tool, students can ask to use the restroom without disturbing others.
✓ If working with a classroom aide, student teacher, volunteers, or other adults in the classroom you will avoid miscommunications that sometimes send multiple children to the restroom at once...and trust me, nothing good ever comes of more than one friend in there at once. ;)
Included in this 16 page resource you will find...
• Boy / Girl Cover Cards in COLOR
• Boy / Girl Cover Cards in BLACK/WHITE
• Student Number Cards 1-36 (sequential)
• Student Number Cards 1-36 (to form a color pattern)
• Background Display
• EDITABLE number / name cards
REAL TEACHER TESTIMONIALS
☺ Jane F. said..."This system is working wonderfully in my classroom. I'm hesitant sometimes to start something new in the middle of the year, but this was a great addition to our routines. We had the opportunity to revisit this issue and change some negative behaviors. Thanks "clutter free classroom". Love it!”
☺ a teacher said...“This has been the best way I have found to keep track of my kids going to the bathroom. And now its super easy to make sure that only one boy and one girl are out at a time!
☺ Natasha N. said..."Love, love, love this idea for managing bathroom. I'm excited to have fewer students asking to go to the bathroom because they can see that someone is already using the restroom.”
☺ First Grade Forever said...“This will really help me to keep track of who is in the bathroom. It will also keep other students from asking to go when there is someone already out!”
