Bubble Gum Blurt Chart - this is something I created for my class to help encourage self control during instruction time. my students have 3 chances (3 pieces of gum per week) and if they interrupt or blurt out a piece is removed from their name and put into the LOST BUBBLES bucket. If they have any pieces left at the end of the week, they will receive a price of bubble gum. Hopefully this will help cut down on interruptions and talking out.
