'Quiet Critters' sit on desks while children are working. They are afraid of loud noise so everyone must be very quiet when they are around. :) Love, Laughter and Learning in Prep!
February Behavior Idea! This glass jar is on my desk and is filled with yummy Valentine hearts. It says "Love to see Good Behavior". When I see a student or students with extra good behavior, I tell them they can get a candy heart from the jar. When the jar is EMPTY, the whole class gets to play a Valentine Game! They were so excited about it today!
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."
Numbersearches! Choose a number, write it in the middle box. Kids search vertically, horizontally and diagonally to find addends that equal the number. In 2nd grade we use this for numbers 7-20. It's a great "sponge" when you have a few spare minutes! I put a blank copy on my Pinterest page.
