Product Description
FOCUS your students with this simple, effective strategy--a FOCUS sign.

How do I use the FOCUS sign? The class starts out at O. (I simply place the clothespin on O). With extremely great focus, they can move up to an F, but with poor focus, they move down to a C, U, and lastly an S. In a given subject, they can always move back up the FOCUS sign. They can move down to a C in one minute, and immediately be returned to an O with appropriate focus. No tangible consequences or rewards come from this strategy--except for internal motivation, pride in our accomplishments, increased learning time, and compliments from the teacher!

The FOCUS sign resets to O for every subject so that students always have the chance to make a turn around (GOAL is INCREASED LEARNING TIME, not punishment). This helps them REFOCUS for a new subject area.

To make the focus sign, print on colored cardstock, cut out the FOCUS letters, hole punch the top and bottom of each circle, and tie the FOCUS letters together with a ribbon or pipe cleaners. Pin it up in a highly-visible area. You can also carry the FOCUS sign with you to different environments (computer lab, library, etc.)

Look for other simple, effective classroom management strategies to come!
