Looking for a new classroom management system? Need new ways to manage behavior?

As a teacher you want to help your students follow the rules so that everyone has an opportunity to be successful. However, losing focus or letting our emotions take charge of our actions can happen. When someone doesn’t follow the rules, it is important to help them regain control and figure out what to do to correct that behavior. The “Time-Out” or “Take a Break” lap book is a great behavior management tool to teach our students to refocus and become effective learners.

When students need a break, they grab a lap book and sit quietly for short time to think about what they were doing and what they should be doing. This lap book is NOT a punishment. It is a time for students to fix the problem or regain control.

This product includes over 100 pages to help you set up custom lap book. It also includes a lesson, morning message to your students, and a letter to parents to help introduce the lap book.

The lap book is great for students to take to specials or when pulled out by other specialty teachers to keep the consistency of your behavior management. It can also be used if needed during field trips, special events, or assemblies.

“Time Out”, “Take a Break”, “Peace Place”, “Rest & Return” and “Quiet Spot” covers for the lap book are include for you to choose from.

All pages come in color and black and white options!
