Need an alternative to taking recess time away as a behavior consequence? I did!! So, I created WALKING TICKETS as an alternative. Now, when my students need a behavior consequence I use a walking ticket. Students walk in a specified area during recess instead of playing. They get the movement and exercise they need, but lose the privilege of playing or talking with friends.
I use a tag chart for behavior management. Walking tickets are given when 2 tags are pulled within the same same day. However, the tickets can be used in any way that suits your needs.
There are 3 versions (shown in the thumbnails)
This ticket has a description of the consequence on the front (I like this version if I want to send the ticket home for a parent to sign and return). A line for the student’s name and the date. On the back, there is space to write the issue and a line for a signature.
This ticket is the same as #1 without the description.
This ticket is titled “Behavior Ticket” so you can customize the consequence (if you do not want to use walking).
A second page of tickets is included so that notes (or a description of the behavior issues) can be be written on the back of the ticket. A signature line is at the bottom if you want to send it home for parents to sign.
There are 4 tickets on each sheet. A teacher’s notes page is included describing how I use the tickets.
I have also included 3 versions of a parent letter explaining the program.
I hope my WALKING TICKETS provide you with a good behavior consequence alternative.
