“Teacher, can I use markers?”
Another student two seconds later,
“Teacher, can we use markers?”
“Yes, remember when I explained the activity
I said, “You may use markers.”
Does this conversation sound familiar? Are you constantly reminding students about things you’ve already said...twice?
Well, this behavior system will be perfect for your classroom.
Simply post the header (Teacher, can I) with the yes/no option on a wall or bulletin board. Place all necessary choices under the header. After you have explained centers or an activity, check off or x out the options that are available to your students.
Don’t want them to use markers? Place an X in the no column.
Can they work on the carpet? Place a check in the yes column.
Now, instead of constantly repeating yourself, students can independently check for answers themselves!
Happy teacher, Happy class!
