Quiet Critters:

Quiet Critters live in a soundproof jar and only come out when it’s quiet! Loud noises hurt their ears, but whispering is ok. They love to sit on students’ desks to watch and learn from the students. They don’t mind being patted but they get scared if anyone picks them up or tries to play with them. If they get scared they go back to their jar to hide.

How I use Quiet Critters:

When I take them out of the jar I place them on the top left hand side of the desk. If the student is too loud or starts to play with them, the Quiet Critter gets moved to the other side of their desk as a reminder that they don’t like loud noises or to be played with. If they continue to be loud they go back into their jar.
At the end of the quiet lesson whoever still has a Quiet Critter on their desk can have points, a sticker, be first to go out to lunch, or whatever incentives you have in the room. Sometimes just having the Quiet Critter on their desk for that lesson is reward enough!

I only use the Quiet Critters sparingly, and only during those times when students need to be concentrating and working quietly by themselves.

This download is for the LABEL that goes on the jar that the Quiet Critters live in as well as instructions on how you can create your own Quiet Critters! I have included labels with different sizes, shapes and borders. I have also included labels that can be edited with your own words and labels that can be resized to fit your container if needed.

If you have a request for different text, border, size or style please message me and I will see what I can do!
