These bathroom passes provide a more mature form of a “Potty Pass” which makes it perfect for upper elementary or middle school students. I designed these to help solve the problem of students “needing” to go to the bathroom A LOT! I needed a method that would allow the students who had a true need to be able to go, without the whole class joining in.
Here’s how it works…
Each student is given 5 bathroom passes a week (or one for each day of school that week). They can keep them on a key ring around the side bar of their desk or chair. If they need to go to the bathroom outside of our normal snack and bathroom break time, they may use a pass. Of course, there needs to be an incentive that rewards students for not using up their bathroom passes (and a policy for if they run out). Choose an incentive that works well with your classroom management plan. I have described mine below.
I use the bathroom passes in conjunction with my class coupon ticket management system ( found here
Basically, my management system requires students save up tickets to buy privileges. At the end of the week, I collect any remaining bathroom passes and give each student one ticket for each pass that they did not use. Then, they are given five new bathroom passes for the next week.
If a student runs out of bathroom passes and has to go to the bathroom again, they must pay a ticket to go.
Want to save ink? Laminate five passes for each student and use them every week to save on the copying.
