Do you want your kiddos to become instantly quiet? Do you need to get your students' attention? Without saying a word, hold up "Zippy" your laminated "Please zip your lips!" poster.
As students notice, they make the silent motion of zipping their lips & raise their hand. Eventually everyone has their lips zipped & their hands raised. Even the stragglers get the message. You are in control and it is blessedly quiet.
Simply train your kiddos that this is what you want them to do, then challenge them to see how fast everyone gets on board. You have now made getting quiet a lot of fun. Win-win.
This FREEBIE is part of my Voice Choice very effective classroom management packet. Voice Choice is quick, easy and fun to implement.
