Blurt chart. Names taken off for confidentiality, but would be on blue tags. Smiley thru frown faces are warnings. If I take off circles with numbers, it is recess minutes students owe. If all circles are removed, student loses entire recess.
Bubble Gum Blurt Chart - this is something I created for my class to help encourage self control during instruction time. my students have 3 chances (3 pieces of gum per week) and if they interrupt or blurt out a piece is removed from their name and put into the LOST BUBBLES bucket. If they have any pieces left at the end of the week, they will receive a price of bubble gum. Hopefully this will help cut down on interruptions and talking out.
Learning to raise our hands.... 3 strikes you are out!! I have a feeling I will be looking for this pin after my first parent-teacher conference next year. Love my little Moo and her jabbering, but better put a stop to it ;)
Use this resource to help manage your "blurters" in the classroom. Like other blurt charts, students receive 3 pieces of gum each day/week, depending on your classroom need. If a student blurts out, they are to remove a piece of gum from the chart. If students have any gum pieces left over after a day/week, then they can receive a piece of real gum!
Give each kid three sticks. Each time a kid talks out of turn, take a stick away. Lose all three and talk out of turn again, get a red stick. Each red stick = lose 5 mins of recess (or whatever consequence you choose). Hmm.... Something to consider.
