Try getting some red, yellow and green

Clip to ScrapBook #6

Solo/plastic cups. Stack them with green on top, yellow in middle, red on bottom. When the group gets too loud, tell them to take the green cup off, and now they are on yellow (warning.) If they continue with being too loud, take the yellow cup off, they are now on red, and they have to stop the activity, go back to their seats and be silent for 5 minutes. Using the visual of the cups really helps. I often ask the loudest student in the group to move the cup--the physical movement sometimes helps cue for a lower volume. I teach 3rd and it works for me.
