The Amazing power of “Go-Stop” cards:
Print enough sets of “Go-Stop” cards for each student in the class. Cut out sets of “Go-Stop” cards (there are eight sets of cards per sheet) and laminate them. One “Go” and one “Stop” card is taped onto each student’s desktop. Throughout the day, as you circulate and scan, simply tap on the card to give students feedback about their behavior without interrupting the flow of instruction! For many students, a simple acknowledgment of their responsible, respectful and productive behavior can encourage continued cooperation. For other students, simply tapping on the “Stop” card allows you to redirect the student while avoiding a power struggle and drawing attention to the student.
