Quiet Kids!

Any suggestions on getting my students to SPEAK LOUDER? I have a group of very sweet, but very quiet kids! Morning Meeting is torture when it's normally fun. Class discussions are not stimulating at all because, although they participate a lot, they speak so softly that they can't hear each other, so they don't listen to each other!

I encourage them to speak louder, but it almost seems impossible!

What I wouldn't give for that problem. My class can't listen to one another because everyone is talking at once ALL THE TIME!!! I've almost used up my whole bag of tricks and it's only week 2. Nothing is working.

Last year,I bought an inexpensive Karaoke machine with a microphone for our class. We used the microphone for announcements and when students were presenting. When the quieter students started to really hear themselves they seemed to become more comfortable. And... I could finally hear what they were saying!
