Time Out for Potty Break!

I was fortunate to have bathrooms in my classroom, but I know some teachers haven't that luxury.

A friend of mine who teaches at another school came up with this ingenious silent signal so that her students could ask for a potty break without interrupting the lesson. All she has to do is give the student a nod, and the child can excuse him/herself. For those children who are very shy about verbally requesting permission to go to the bathroom, (especially in a room full of kids) I think this a quick, efficient, and face-saving use of the well-known Time Out hand gesture.
