  3. hi,

    In my class we had a BIG problem with persistent shouting out. I decided to scrap a lesson and get it sorted. We spent over an hour talking and discussing how to sort it out and we came up with loads of ideas. We decided on having a sheet next my chair where I tend to do most of my teaching from with all the kids names on it. If they shouted out when I was talking, then I would give them a strike - Five strikes and they loose five minutes break time to 'pay the class back' for disturbing and disrupting everyone. I introduced it last week and it has really helped. I now dont even correct a child for shouting out, I just put up a strike. At the beginning of each lesson I try to remind everyone how close they are to loosing their break.

    Although I use this for shouting out, it could easily be adapted for anything. My kids also didnt want to give the people shouting out a chance to earn it back and they wanted to carry it on for a week and get a new sheet on Mondays - AMAZING impact - plus brownie points as it was the children who came up with the idea.

    Cheerio
