Tired of having to stop teaching in order to reprimand students for talking during instruction?
Give them a talking ticket instead!
A talking ticket is a warning, kind of like when adults drive too fast they get a speeding ticket. It’s to let students know that they are not following the rules of the classroom.
If a student is talking when they are not supposed to, silently put a talking ticket on his or her desk. This will let them know they are not following the expectations of the class. No interruptions necessary!
