Do you do whole-class bathroom breaks? If so, how many? Do you let your students go individually during class? How do you handle accidents? Throughout the school year, just a few of my students have had accidents (as far as I know), but of course when it does happen, it can be very upsetting for the kids and parents. I am wondering if there is any way to improve my setup. I teach 1st grade and don't normally do whole-class bathroom breaks (honestly, because the bathroom areas are usually occupied by another class when we get there), but I let them go individually almost whenever they want (as long as I'm not in the middle of a lesson). This was the setup when I student taught -- they can take turns during the day, and they are able to go freely at lunch & P.E. If they say it's an emergency, they can go immediately. Do you think that's OK for 1st grade?
