Use these Chill Out Passes to defuse behaviour incidents before they happen.
Print, cut and laminate these cards. You could either give one to each student in your class or put them in a spot where students know where to go and get them.
Students are required to bring the card to you when they feel they are becoming upset or angry and need a break from the situation.
These cards allow students to take responsibility for their own emotions and behaviour.
Ensure you speak to the student after their chill out time to discuss the situation and any concerns they may have.
