Classroom management system that I use to manage student talking. Each day the chart starts with 2 minutes. If I have to stop teaching to manage students blurting out/talking, the chart is moved to 1 minute. If the students continue to talk, the chart is moved to 0 which indicates they do not get to chit chat during transition time. The goal is to stay on ‘2’ to receive a “chit-chat” break for an entire 2 minutes while we transition to the next lesson. This allows me to gather materials for the next lesson!
I attached the header to my board with double sided tape and positioned a command strip hook beneath to hold the number cards. The number cards were laminated and I used a hole punch and made a hole in the center to hang onto the command hook.
