Yadda-yadda

Clip to ScrapBook #3

I've seen on the Whole Brain teaching site a tool Chris uses for volume called the "Volume-o-meter." He just draws a quick meter with "frenzy" at the top and "silent" at the bottom and "yadda yadda" in the middle. I think he even had "yelling" between the "yadda yadda" and "frenzy". Quickly he would point to the middle and the kids would mirror his hand moving up and down the meter saying"yadda" in the approparite volume. If they were at the "frenzy" they were screaming "yadda" adn if they were at the bottom they were barely wispering "yadda". Moving up and down and changing thier volume was a bit of a reminder to them. Then he would stop them at the volume they need to be and tell them to continue working. This really only took a few seconds to do.
