I don’t know about you, but whether it’s the nicer weather, the “days until summer” countdowns, or an impending full-moon, but my kiddos have been COMPLETELY nuts this week. I rarely do this, but I choose almost the same lesson on interrupting for almost all of my groups this week.
Of course, I had several students interrupting while we were discussing why adults get upset when students interrupt…..
Anyway, I was really excited when this awesome freebie came across Pinterest tonight! It’s a contract you can use with students to help curb interrupting. Of course, a contract itself might not keep all your kids on track, but I like that it has places for students to brainstorm alternatives to interrupting. I’m definitely planning to incorporate it into the rest of my groups this week.
