Question: When is it Okay to Interrupt Groups?
Answer: Never! (Unless someone is seriously hurt or sick.)
After explaining this to my students repeatedly and still seeing very little change, I decided to make a visual with outlandish examples of when it's okay to interrupt small group time. It provides a giggle for us all, but also provides students a reminder before they approach small groups that unless someone is hurt or sick, then whatever they want to say needs to wait for an appropriate time.
Included are 4 different signs for you to choose from.
