Classroom Management: Visual Think Sheet

Working with first graders, I have had my share of students who need to think about their behavior but can't read many of the time out sheets out there or they can't generate ideas.  One year the behavior specialist in our district shared this think sheet with me and I have used it ever since.  Whenever a child acts out and loses control, they go to a cool off area.  After they have regained control and can talk, we complete the sheet together and discuss alternatives.  It is good to document your student conferences for RTI and parent conferences. Hope it helps!
