"Can I go to the bathroom?" I don't know about you, but this question can drive a teacher insane, especially when I feel like you've discussed appropriate times to use the restroom. Use this sorting activity to clearly show students appropriate times to use the restroom or wait to use restroom throughout your day.
Some ways to use this activity:
*Make copies of the sort for partners or groups. Have them sort each example into 2 groups: Ok to use the bathroom and Wait to use the bathroom
*Scan the image into SMART notebook, take photo captures of each slide, and then use it as a whole class, interactive sort discussing along the way
*After sorting, keep this sheet or a copy of a student sort glued to paper and post it by the classroom door or by the bathroom if you have one in your room (like myself). When students ask, simply point to the sign and let them problem solve.
Black and White and Colored Header version included.
