Are you tired of your students coming in from recess and five minutes later asking to use the bathroom? Here's an easy solution!
Each week give your students three bathroom tickets. Children may use the bathroom at any time, but they must hand over a ticket. If you're teaching, they must hand over two tickets. If they run out of tickets, they may still use the bathroom, but owe five minutes of recess.
At the end of the quarter, they may cash in remaining tickets for a trip to the prize box. This is a great incentive and solves frequent trips to the bathroom.
*Some children have medical conditions which require using the bathroom upon request. Please discuss this with parents before incorporating this method.
