I do the same as what the previous posters mentioned. I ask that they wait until I'm done with any direct teaching.

I also clearly state what are the "best times" to go - first thing in the a.m., snack, lunch/recess, end of day. I also remind the ones that need reminding - "Now is the time to use the bathroom if you need to."

If they still ask, I let them go. Most don't abuse the privilege.

Incidentally, I noticed a lot of students needing to go A LOT at the beginning of the school year. I think that over the summer they're not used to having to wait or go at set times. So the minute they get that urge, they have to go.

Now that we're in the routine, that has lessened greatly.
