WHAT I TELL STUDENTS WHEN I NEED TO DISCIPLINE THEM BUT DON'T WANT TO BE MEAN IN

  1. 1.
    La'ah'tzor!
    Hebrew for freeze; we often use this in games so it's less aggressive than other sharp commands
  2. 2.
    "I will feed you to a lobster"
    A nonsense threat when I need to let off steam
  3. 3.
    "Don't be a punk"
    More serious and a warning rather than a critique in delivery
  4. 4.
    (Silently drawing an X on the board)
