This is my interpretation of the Quiet Critters noise management tool. So simple, made out of pompoms, heart shapes cut out of foam, googly eyes and bows- and lots of hot glue!
The "critters" are handed out to students at the beginning, or part of a lesson which requires silent work. If a student is noisy, as a warning, the critter is moved to the edge of their desk. If the noise continues, the critter is taken away. Students with a critter still remaining receive a reward or prize at the end of the lesson.
I can't wait to start using them with my class!
