I made up something like this last year for summer school. I'd say, "Give me 5." Kids would have to raise their little paws, give me their 2 eyes, 2 ears, and one closed mouth to show me they were being respectful, good listeners and ready to learn. It was effective at getting their attention. Forgot about it, thanks!
This is a good idea for behavior management in the classroom. In Beautiful Child, Torey dealt with a lot of problem behavior. This could be made in to a sign that would be hung in the "cool down spot" in a corner of the room. Although it may not work with every student, it could be helpful to at least one.
This is a link to print out warning Cards. I like these cards because it says to bring the card back in five minutes and tell what you did wrong and how you will fix it. This gives students time to reflect on their behavior and cool down before discussing it with the teacher. I like this idea too @Emmeretta Russey
*FREE* Quick and easy notes to staple to unfinished work. Each note has a quick checklist, so that the teacher may note why the student has unfinished work. A blank has been provided for additional reasons/notes. Wish I had seen this earlier!!!
