For some classes, the Emergency Hall Pass just doesn't work. Maybe the kids are too forgetful. Maybe you feel bad holding them to just two bathroom breaks a quarter. Maybe you're just sick of hearing them whine that they are out of "emergency" breaks. For that, I created a second way to cut down on time outside of class. I have a notebook close to the door with a sheet of paper for each and every student I teach. On the front side is a sign-out sheet. Whenever a student needs to leave the room they tell me where they're going, I give permission, and then they have to write the date, time out, reason for leaving, and the time returned when they get back. Since most students are inherently lazy, they'll actually remain in class so they don't have to sign the book. I like having the record to see how often students are missing class which is exceptionally helpful for certain parent-teacher conferences! (If a student is absent for an entire class period I will also write the absence down on sheet.) On a side note, I keep a behavior log on the back side of this sheet. I don't have a copy of the Student Log online for download but if you're interested I'd be happy to send you a copy via email. Just drop me a comment or an email!
