Are you tired of your students interrupting valuable classroom time to announce that they need to use the restroom? I implemented this bulletin board/restroom pass system and it worked wonders! No more interruptions!
How it works:
When a student needs to use the restroom he or she quietly goes to the bulletin board and finds the fish with his or her name on it. They remove that fish from the “free swimming” area and attach it to either the “Girls” fishing line or “Boys” fishing line. This alerts you that the student needs to use the restroom. When you are ready for that student to use the restroom, simply pull the fish off of the line and hand it to the student. This can all be done without interrupting something you are saying; and you can control when the student leaves a lesson.
