    Quiet critters come out only when it's quiet. I can really see kids working hard to have one sit on their desk.I made us a jar for "quiet critters" and whenever the students are working quietly, cleaning up quietly, walking in the hall quietly, etc. we can earn them.So far it is working and the kids are very excited about earning "quiet critters" (they only come out when it is quiet-they don't like noise!). When the jar is full we'll earn a class treat.

    I'm just pinning this for my schoolteacher, sunday school teacher, or any teacher friends. I thought it was a cute idea: Quiet critters come out only when it's quiet. Kids will work hard to have one sit on their desk.

Love this management idea! Here's a bit of what the blog author says about them. "The Quiet Critters will only come out of their "sound proof" container if it's completely quiet. They have no mouths so they don't talk and like quiet."

Bubble Snakes. Will keep kids busy! Looks like it would keep me busy! I've never seen that before

Quiet Critters - only come out of the jar when it's quiet! I need to make these this summer!!

Now this is a great PBIS form. This is perfect for those kids who never seem to get recognition.

Here's a poster defining what fair means in the classroom.

Quiet Critters want to sit on your desk, see what you're doing, and get smarter. (Could remove them from the chatty students; those who still have their "critter" at the end of the "quiet" time could turn it in for a small reward.)

FREEBIE: Cool sign to remind students that they should be silent when they should be listening!
