Quiet Time

How do you let your students know it is time to work quietly  There are so many wonderful classroom management techniques out there today that really work wonders.  I stumbled across this in another teachers classroom, and I just loved it. I thought I would share. 

I bought a large jar from Walmart (around $6.00), some small decorative lights ($2.00), letter stickers ($1.97), and some ribbon ($1.97).  I put it all together and came up with what you see below.

When the light is off, this is an indiction to students that they are allowed to work together.  Once the light is switched on, students must work quietly, on their own, at their desks. 

This can change to meet the needs of your classroom.  The reason I love it is because it is a constant indicator to students to be working on their own. They won't need to raise their hands to ask because the indicator light will provide that information!!

Hope you guys are getting some work done in your classroom. I am just plain overwhelmed!! I shall get there. :) 

Happy Teaching!
