noise level

I do centers with my 1st grade... depending on what they are doing it is very easy for noise levels to go up. What I did was set my timer on my phone 6 min or so... its not a very loud timer so they have to use their inside voices so they can hear the timer go off. This seemed to work bc they like to tell me that it is time to switch & if they are too loud they can't do that. Also, when we first started doing centers I kept the door shut... but now I remind them that I can leave to door open bc they now know how to use their inside voices. It just takes practice and lots of reminders of how you want your centers to run. They know that centers is the FUN way to learn and don't want to give that up!!
