I hit my breaking point with some of my "frequent fliers" telling me that they were in a state of emergency and needed to head to the bathroom. (I know I'm not the only one who has some of these kids!) I decided that I needed to make leaving my room a little harder. That is where this sheet came from.
If nothing else, my kiddos are getting a little extra practice with reading and interpreting time, right? :)
My favorite comment came from one of my "frequent fliers" the other day: "I used to pretend I had to go to the bathroom to get out of doing work, but now it's more work to leave than to just do my assignment." PRICELESS! :)
Hope this sheet can help in your class too!
