Classroom Posters and Bathroom Pass #mondaymadeit

I am linking up with 4th Grade Frolics for this week's Monday Made it to share a few things I have been working on.  :o)

If you follow me on Twitter you will know that I have been busy with "Made Its" this summer. :o)

I am trying to find a solution to a never ending problem.  Students needing to use the bathroom is always such a problem and I have struggled with this every year.  I am trying something new this year after coming across various ideas on Pinterest.

I have made a Bathroom Pass Record Sheet for the students to keep in their Math Folder.  They will be given 5 opportunities each quarter to use the restroom during class. My expectations and procedures are clearly given on My Bathroom Pass Record Sheet.

Even though this is a Bathroom Pass Record Sheet, you will see that I included a spot for them to record their destination.  This was done intentionally.  I teach middle school.  I want the students to write that they are going to the bathroom so therefore they should not be going anywhere else. :o)

You will also notice that I am including Bonus Points for students who never leave to use the restroom.  They will be able to use these Bonus Points on assessments and homework. :o)

I am including files for you to download and use.  Feel free to modify to fit your needs.  I am including links to the PDF file, editable Word file and a zip file of the fonts I used.

I am also including another "Made It" that I shared on Twitter this weekend. :o)  These are some Keep Calm Posters I made for my classroom. Feel free to download and use.

  4. Love the bathroom pass idea. Thank you for sharing!

  5. Love love love!!! Those are fabulous!

  6. Love the Keep Calm posters! We do something like bathroom passes already. We have block classes though so I give them a break between the two classes. Because of that I won't let them go during the first 20 minutes and the last 10 minutes. I have found many times they will wander to the wrong bathroom, so I have to write which bathroom they should be going to on their pass. Middle schoolers, can't say they aren't creative. :-)

    1. Thank you... :o) And yes middle schoolers are so creative... LOL... ;o)
