Several months ago, maybe longer, I wrote about BIST and today I am back to share a
So a brilliant teacher I work with came up with this idea and it is such a great idea that when I saw these bags...
...at target I thought they were a perfect fit. I got them at Target, and was able to get the matching pencil pouches too.
So the history behind the Buddy Room is that when a student is being particularly disruptive in your room, you have given them a redirect, have gone to the Safe Seat in your room and is still struggling to get it together you then send the student to the Buddy room.
A Buddy room is just a classroom outside of their own but where they are still in a learning environment. They are to sit in the Safe Seat in that room until they show they are ready to return to their own classroom.
They don't go with nothing though. That is where the Buddy Room Bag comes in. So in each bag I have...
1. a spiral notebook.
2. box of crayons
3. pencils (2)
5. some leveled readers
Basically anything that the student will need to calm down and/ or complete their assignment. I would put all the small items in the matching pencil pouches so they don't slip out of the bag.
So I thought that these cuties were perfect for the job.
For when a student is upset I got "Mr. Happy."
For those talkers I got "Little Miss. Chatterbox."
For when someone is hurt I got "Mr. Bump."
And for those naughty moments I got "Little Miss. Naughty."
Because I teach multiple grades and levels I was thinking of having books with different levels in them but I think I will just put a variety of levels in each bag. So it won't matter which bag a student picks up.
On a completely different note I finally ordered my classroom goodies for this coming year and have received 1 out of 2 packages. As soon and the second arrives today, (YAY!) I will link up with Kristen's Summer Shopping List Party. So keep an eye out for another post from me... soon.
Hope your having as fabulous and quiet a summer as I am.
