My students need many reminders to use different volumes throughout our schedule. The same voice isn't used in whole group class discussion that is used when partner reading, or silent work.
I created these to provide a visual reminder through the day. I clip a star (glued to a clothes pin) to the correct volume level. If I notice the students are really getting out of control, I ding my bell and say, "Sound Check". This happens more as the school year starts, but soon they will be into the routine "Sound Check"s will happen much less.
There are 5 sound levels in this product.
0- Absolute Mute
1- Spy Guy
2- Weak Speak
3- Crowd Loud
4- Wrong Strong
