Think Time

Back to Main Page

When a student breaks an expectation listed in the PBIS section they can be sent to Think Time to reflect upon those actions. Think Time should be a place that can be monitored by an adult but ideally not in your particular classroom.

Students remain in Think Tine until they fill out a Think Time Debriefing Form. The debriefing forms (example below) require the students to identify the expectation that they breeched and then identify the correct behavior for that situation. The students then must check that they are ready to adhere to the expectation and are ready to return to class.

Here are some of my experiences with Think Time...
