Use this product to help manage your class or an individual student from blurting or calling out during a whole group lesson.
How To Use:
*Introduce the Blurt Alert to your whole class or to an individual child.
*Talk about what your expectations are during a whole group lesson
(raise their hand to speak, not interrupt the speaker, etc).
*Discuss any consequences you want to have in place for taking a
smile(s) off the board as well as the rewards for keeping all the smiles
on the board during a whole group lesson.
*At the beginning of a whole group lesson, place all smiley pieces on
the Blurt Alert Board (for whole class) or Blurt Alert Lanyard (for a
student’s individual use).
*When a student blurts out, remove (because there is no IF someone blurts, am I right? ☺) a smile from the board. At the end of the lesson (or day if you choose) discuss how the class or student did and follow through with the consequences that you have in place.
