PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

My kiddos LOVE zipping their lips.

Without a word, I hold up my poster paddle.
There's a zippered letter Z on one side, and a quiet, zipped up happy face on the other. (Glue them back-to-back on a free paint stick).

As soon as my students notice that I'm holding up "Zippy", they silently make the motion of zipping their lips, then raise their hand.

I can see at a glance who's on board, and even the stragglers get a clue in a few seconds. It's so quiet you can hear a pin drop!

As motivation, at the end of the month pass out the "I'm a star lip zipper" bookmarks for them to color & collect.

There's also a "superstar lip zipper" poster.
Each month run the star pattern off on a different color.
Place these stars under the poster.
Students who are superstar zippers for that month, get to sign their name.
Attach the smaller star with the month on it, on a corner of the star.

I’ve also included zippered-star tokens. Print, laminate, trim & pass out to the first 3 students who zipped their lips when you held up Zippy, or for anything else you deem appropriate.

Teach responsibility, and have children save them 'til they get X amount, then "cash in" to receive a prize.
There are 72 on a page; laminate to reuse each year.

This easy-peasy behavior modification technique, motivates & builds self-esteem too.

I'm Diane from Teach With Me, hoping you and your kiddos love this simple, "super-duper-shutter-upper" and that Zippy is as successful for you, as it has been for me.
