Many students would ask to go to the restroom because they were bored or chose not to utilize our classroom restroom breaks. Many students would ask my assistant to go the restroom, and then shortly after ask me. It was a big distraction and this bathroom/drink card provided a solution. When a student asks to use the restroom we will initial the card and then they will leave the card out on their desk so it is easy to see who is out of the room in the restroom. This also alleviated the issue of not realizing that the student had already be given permission just moments before by the other adult in the room.
