    Bathroom Buddies
    By Lou

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I teach 5th grade and I have 2 bathroom buddies (stuffed beanie baby bears). One is bluish-greenish, and the other is pinkish. Whenever a boy needs to use the bathroom, he takes the blue buddy off the shelf and puts it on his desk; a girl uses the pink one. They don't need to ask me, but I can easily tell where they are because the bear is on the desk. I have done this for two years and it works better than anything else I've tried. I do set a few ground rules, such as don't leave while I'm teaching, don't go five minutes or less before a recess, etc. Try it -- you may like it!
