Students have to write in a log every time they do not turn in their homework on time and explain themselves. This helps teachers keep track of how many times the same student does not do his/her homework and establishes accountability.
This is a link to print out warning Cards. 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.
Great idea for classroom job! One student is selected to be the "Ask Me" person (to help students who need assistance) while the teacher works with small groups-no disruptions for the teacher! Kids would love to take turns doing this!
