    Wonder if these work? Quiet critters come out only when it's quiet. Love it! I can really see kids working hard to have one sit on their desk.

    My 2nd grade teacher did this exact thing and you were the MAN if you had a critter on your desk. LOL! I still remember it fondly. :)

'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!

Quiet spray, there is nothing in the bottle but when you take your kids down the hall you "spray" them with the quiet spray.

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."

Great starting points for conversations with children. Perhaps children will share more with the right question.

Must Do / May Do...I like that so they can see what they can do once they are done with the necessary things!

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.)

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.

“Whooo’s been good” is a little surprise jar that we have in our house for when I catch the kids doing something unexpected and totally awesome! aspottedpony.com

Got this idea from the web. Really hope these "quiet fuzzies" will sit on my students desks and encourage quiet work.
