Quiet Critters

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!


  1. These are so cute Jessie, I hope they work in the classroom

  2. So to use them for independent reading, maybe reading buddies.
