FREEBIE ALERT! How to transition kids AWAY from technology!!

So I don't know how else to put it… my students are OBSESSED and CRAZY over technology.  I allow them to "work for" computer and iPod during work time.  This makes them work to their full potential and it minimizes behaviors… that is until it's time to STOP playing.  I have had kids in the past go into FULL BLOWN tantrum when it is time to transition back into work time.

With that being said, I wanted to share with you FABULOUS readers a little freebie.  Click on the pictures below to grab it for free!!!

I use these when I am priming students.  I give them timers (3 minutes) and verbally tell them, "3 more minutes…"  When the timer goes off, my staff or I simply hand them this card to cue them to stand up and walk away.  Believe it or not, this card has worked wonders! I hope this helps you too :)
