These hall pass punch cards work wonders for classroom management!
How many times have we heard "Can I go to the bathroom?" from a student? You know they almost never have to actually go, but you usually let them, since you can never be too safe. However, that student leaves the room and loses out on what's going on in class.
Here is how the punch cards work:
1. Each student receives one at the start of the quarter/trimester.
2. They have 4 "punches"--4 opportunities to leave the room for a drink, go to their locker, the restroom, etc.
3. Once their 4 "punches" are gone, they're out of luck.
4. Any UN-USED punches that are left at the end of the quarter/trimester become bonus points!
Students begin to prioritize and use the restroom when they have a break!
