Nibits for Newbies 8.23.15 & FREEBIE

If it's SUNDAY...
it's time for 

NIBITS FOR NEWBIES!


This week....

BLURTING!

You know...
You are in the middle of a great lesson,
AND WHAM!
THAT KID...that kid did it AGAIN!

HE YELLS  squeaks BLURTS out a comment
( it may or may not, have anything to do with what we are doing now!)

HE   BLURTS!  LOUD!
( And sometimes...he BLURTS out the WRONG ANSWER...
And I have to START ALL OVER AGAIN!

UGH!


So ..what to do? What to do???????

I start with a one-to-one discussion. 
( Maybe he/she doesn't realize they are doing it???)
I give the child the benefit of the doubt...FIRST

THEN.....

BLURT CARDS!
HUH?

Yes! Blurt Cards!

I tally each time the child BLURTS in class.
The card is taped to the child's desk for a visual reminder.

I use it for tracking...
I make notes as to "TRIGGERS" and times/lessons that may be excellerating the BLURTS.
 And then I look for patterns.
 ( Does the child blurt only during whole class lessons...
after lunch more than before lunch...etc..etc..)

I am trying to see if there is ANYTHING I can do to help STOP
the child before they start!

I use the blurt cards for parent conferences, IST's, interventions...
DOCUMENTATION!

So to you my friends...
Here are your 
FREE
Blurt cards!

(I HOPE YOU DON'T NEED THEM!)
HAHAHA
