    Bathroom Breaks

    I use bathroom passes, I have a boy and a girl one and they must take one to the bathroom. If someone leaves it in the bathroom, then nobody gets to go to the bathroom until that person retrieves it at recess (obviously, I watch them and if they are about to have an accident...they go.) One idea our Kindergarten teacher does is have her kids show her R in sign language. This way, she's not interupted and can silently respond to individual kids. I also use My Time...Your Time. My time is when I am up teaching in front of the class or during Reading Rotations...Your Time is when students are sitting at their desks working. If it is their time, they don't even need to ask to go to the restroom or get a drink, as long as the pass is there they take it and go, during my time though they can only interrupt me if they are going to throw up or have an accident.
