    Blurt Alerts
    By johnsju

    I also use Blurt Alerts, but I tweaked it a little. When students call out, I drop a Blurt Alert card on their desk. Each Blurt Alert equals one minute off of recess. I have a student who calls out excessively, and one day a few weeks ago was particularly bad. At recess time, when he counted up his THIRTEEN Blurt Alerts and realized he'd lost all of recess plus 3 minutes for the next day, he shaped up some. I also like that this system doesn't punish the whole class, just the "blurter". It's working well for me.
