Use this free poster to help you quiet your classroom down! I start by saying:
5 your hands and feet are quiet
4 you're sitting straight
3 your ears are listening
2 your mouths are closed
and 1 your eyes are on the teacher!
I will sometimes say "and 1 your reading finger is high in the air" if we're reading a book together. I use this to quiet my class down before read alouds or before splitting up into guided reading groups!
