    NOISE: remove one letter at a time when the voice level gets too loud. When NO is left, there is NO talking allowed. Interesting idea! Love this idea for the kids and their friends.

    Classroom Management: NOISE…removing one letter at a time when our voice level gets too loud. When NO is left, there is NO more talking! Love this! A lot more clearer than just putting up strikes on the board or letting the noise escalate to a point where you just cut off talking. It also gives the kids a chance to regain control of their noise before it gets to that point.

This is a good way for the kids to control their volume in the class room and even outside of the class room. Again kids at this age learn best when they are shown something, instead of being told something.

voice level poster - i would adapt it but i LOVE the idea of 'spy talk' with a cute picture of a spy or something!

I use this in my classroom, but I definitely need to start calling Voice Level 1 "spy talk". It's MUCH cooler than whispering! (If anyone has never heard of this before, I HIGHLY recommend it! It took a couple of weeks for my kids to get the hang of it, but now they ask me what voice level they are allowed to be at for certain activities. It's AMAZING!)

Voice Level Chart with Chevron and Chalkboard Design! The Voice Level Chart is a quick and easy way to refer to the noise level in your classroom. Would add a arrow of some sort to indicate what voices they should b using!

Might have to try this with my talkative 6th graders. Management Monday: Classroom Voice Levels

leave words off, leave numbers on, add pictures of times in our day later

Here's a set of cards for monitoring noise levels in your room. Includes Roar Like a Lion (loud! like at recess), Talk Like a Parrot (normal talking, like group work), Squeak Like a Mouse (whisper voices), and Silent Like a Sloth (no voices).

This would be especially useful in an open concept school (where I'm at right now for my placements). Whatever voice level is being asked of the students could be held up somewhere in the class or even brought with us outside. AG

If the clip is on Table Voice, then only the members of their table should be able to hear their voices.  Teacher Voice is their louder speaking voice.  This is generally the voice they use when they are reading or sharing with the class.
