This chart is going to change your classroom for the better. It is the easiest classroom management tool and SO effective! Print the pieces, glue them to a poster board and attach the arrow with a brad. Those simple steps will save you many headaches! The chart is clearly labeled "no voices", "whisper voices", "partner voices" and "group voices". This is a super easy way to show your students what you are expecting of them and their volume.
Often if my students aren't using Partner Voice correctly we will go to Whisper Voice or No Voice until they are back in control of them selves. It is amazing how well my students have responded to something so simple. I know your students will too! Get this chart and see your classroom change.
