Better swish, Jellyfish! Chop chip, Lollipop! Goatta run, skeleton! Bye-bye, butterfly! Good-bye friends!

Classroom redirection without interrupting the class. Copy about 10 of these on a piece of paper, laminate, cut out, carry some in your pocket as you walk around the classroom. If a student if off task or disturbing, lay one on the desk. Later the student should return it to you with an explanation and promise. Great idea for centers.
