PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Access to Boardmaker Software required for this product.

Do you have a noisy class that need frequent reminders to quiet down? Then this excellent resource is right for you!

I use this resource with my own PK-2 grade students when introducing voice volume. Teach your students what is the expected voice volume for each daily activity. Use the Voice-o-meter throughout the school day to remind and reinforce the expected voice volumes.

This resource has clearly represented visuals and simple and direct language. Great way to reinforce and generalize social thinking concepts into large and small group sessions.

Learning Goal: Students will match the school activity to the appropriate level on the Loudness scale.

Materials:
• Voice-o-meter
• Activity Visuals

Directions: Print Activity Visuals, cut out and laminate. Glue magnets on the back so that your students can manipulate the pictures on an easel or whiteboard.

Lesson Plan:
1. Introduce the Voice-o-meter. Act out Levels 1-4 for your students. Talk about how Level 5 is yelling or screaming and that it is unexpected to talk at this level inside.
2. For each daily activity have the child match it to the appropriate Level on the meter. For example, when children are lining up they should be at Green ~ silent. Be sure to have discussions regarding what the group looks, sounds and feels like at each level.
3. Close the activity with the whole group acting out “Green, Blue and Yellow.” Provide specific feedback. (e.g. “I noticed that everyone was silent at Green.” “When our class was at Yellow I could still hear my partner talking.)

*Make sure that students are only acting out “expected behaviors” and using their words to describe “unexpected behaviors.” Research shows that children are more likely to show unexpected behaviors if they practice or role-play them.
