Yack Attack! {Freebie}

Hi there!  Today's post is short and sweet!  One thing I've been meaning to share with all of you are my "Yack Attack" tokens.  My students get a "Yack Attack" when they call out or talk when they should be listening.  If they get 3 "Yack Attacks" in a day, they pull a card from our 4-3-2-1 system.  Luckily, no one has ever gotten 3, which tells me these babies must work!  I've heard of this idea before, so I can't take credit for coming up with the term, "Yack Attack."  But what I've done is actually create these as tokens to give to my students.  If you like this idea, click on the link to get your own free set.  Print as many as you need!


  1. What's the 4-3-2-1 system? ... I LOVE this idea and wish I had seen this for my Littles this school year and last.

    1. Basically, 4-3-2-1 is my behavior management system displayed on a clip chart. The students start each day with a four and move their clip as a result of rule breaking. Each number has a specific consequence. Three means lose a recess, 2 means a note sent home, and 1 means a phone call home. So earning three hack attacks would cause students to move down a number (usually a four to a three).

  2. Would also like to know more about the 4-3-2-1 system. Thank you for sharing!!!!

  3. I really like this a lot. Your 4-3-2-1 System is genius too! It's just what I need thank you!
