Do you have students who have issues with blurting out during lessons? Is the blurting disrupting the flow of your lessons and distracting other students? Need a way to discourage students from shouting out? I've been teaching for 26 years and I have had some classes that really struggled to control shouting out during lessons. In an effort to discourage blurting, I created SHOUT OUT SLIPS. Students who are repeatedly blurting are told to fill out a SHOUT OUT SLIP. They write down whatever was blurted (beginning writers write 3 words they blurted out). I have found this to be an effective way to discourage blurting. My students did NOT enjoy having to write out their blurts and began to catch themselves to avoid a SHOUT OUT SLIP.
The products contains a parent letter describing the program. A second version is a blank master (so you can customize your own letter). A third version contains and extra line for adding consequences of accumulating a certain number of SHOUT OUT SLIPS.
There are 3 versions of the SHOUT OUT SLIPS (3 slips per page)
Version #1: Name line, 2 lines for recording what was blurted.
Version #2: Name line, 3 boxes for writing 3 words that were blurted.
Version #3: Name line, Date line and 2 lines for recording what was blurted.
I hope my SHOUT OUT SLIPS help students to develop better self control and lower the amount of blurting that occurs in your classroom!
