My little sweeties are always forgetting to raise their hands for permission to speak out and it's been about to drive.me.plumb.CRAZY! Enter the handy, dandy ..... ("Did you say I can win a prize?") Blurt Chart! I saw this Blurt Chart awhile back and decided to whip one up. Mine is not as cute but it serves its purpose. Thank the good heavens! Here's how it works in my room. Each number represents a child. Beside each number I have one blank post-it note. The original chart I saw used 3 but I needed less to offer that more instant gratification feel for my little ones. Whenever someone blurts out they have to go remove the post-it beside their name. Whichever student is the last one with a post it left beside their name is the winner and gets a special treat! Do you ever have a problem with your students blurting?
