quiet critters-when you decide it is important for students to be quiet pass out quiet critters- take them away from students who talk. At the end of the activity anyone who still has a quiet critter gets a prize, point, whatever you use.
Quiet Critters They live in a soundproof jar & only come out when it's quiet. Loud noises hurt their ears, but whispering is ok They love to sit on students' desks & watch & learn from the students. If the student is too loud, they get moved to the other side of their desk. 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 or whatever incentives you have in the room.
I know this is supposed to be for a classroom, but I kind of want to do this with our front door. If you laminate the pieces, you could reuse them each year. -- Classroom Door Decorations | Winter classroom door decoration -gingerbread house | Christmas

Use the bracelets for assigning students into teams for class projects. Or if you want random team assignment, put the bracelets in a paper bag and have students close their eyes and pick one. hmmm clever
*Power Pellets -Anytime I call out "Power Position" the students have to stop what they are doing, fold their arms, and look at me. The first one to do so quietly will get a Power Pellet (aka, one skittle). Seriously teachers, THIS WORKS! I don't even really yell the words, I just simply and casually say them and they stop. It's magic what one Skittle will do for a kiddo! :}
