One week of work with the kids is almost down – several thousand to go… Jokes, jokes I love my little babies and we had a really great week.

Here is a behavior management freebie for you today. This is part of my ultimate behavior management packet and one of my all time favorite behavior management visuals to use in my classroom.

Disclaimer: this visual should only be used for students whose behavior is reinforced by attention! If students are having inappropriate behaviors to get positive or negative attention from staff or teachers – a time out is in appropriate punishment that could be effective because you will be removing attention. Do NOT use this type of intervention/visual for behaviors that are functioning as a method of escape – ie to get out of a task, avoid work, get out of a social interaction etc. – using a time out procedure will just be giving them exactly what they want! And the bad behaviors will never go away and could get worse – have I scared you yet??

 

Here is your time out freebie (pdf version)! Happpppppy Friday!
