I know some of you have really awesome 4 or 5 level visual sound level posters in your classroom, and I have one up that we will graduate to, but my VERY energetic class needs a more basic visual for them. My administrator suggested a two colour visual and we've been using this for about a week now.
Time will tell if it has long term effects. This poster board CAN'T be missed. We've talked at length about how red is the colour of STOP, and green is the colour of GO. I also, as you can see, included a single superhero working alone quietly for stop, and several heroes together for TALK.
Do you use visuals to remind your students when they are allowed to speak and when they need to listen?
