Your students will love these! I made these in order to regain my own sanity--I didn't think they would work as well as they did, but they really do help! The rules of our second grade classroom have always included DON'T CALL OUT and limit your requests to leave the room while I am actively explaining a skill or task... HOWEVER, we all know that the young ones are impulsive and call out or need to go to the bathroom. Multiply that by a few an hour and you lose your mind! When I introduced these props it was a slow learning process, but once it kicked in, it kicked in! Now they raise the lips and the mustache to share, raise the toilet silently so I can nod to them in consent without interrupting the lesson or place a folded card so that I know that they need help or have finished a task and need something else to do. They work like a charm!
I pray that they are a blessing to you as well!
Lips to cut out and adhere to a chop stick which students raise to indicate desire to speak, answer or share.
Mustaches to cut out and adhere to a chop stick which students raise to indicate desire to speak, answer or share
A sink to cut out and adhere to a chop stick which students raise to request a trip to the fountain
A toilet to cut out and adhere to a chop stick which students raise to request a trip to the toilet
Folding cards for there desks include:
I am finished with my work, may I have a new task
I am finished with my work, may I help a friend (peer tutoring is so helpful!)
I am stuck, Please help me!
I have a question about this, please help me.
