Earlier in the week I read that to help control the noise levels in the
classroom, to write the word NOISE on the board. And then to erase a letter,
starting with the E, as the letters disappeared to the word NO, meaning "no
talking". Welllllll, I tried that today. WOW!!!!!! It worked great with one
3rd grade class and tomorrow, on to 4th and 2nd grades. The kids were
policing themselves. It was great. Thank you, thank you. This is my first
year out there and I have nearly exhausted every trick in the book. Anxious
to see how it goes with the rest of my elementary. Now, if I could only get
my secondary students to be more enthusiastic. Oh well, maybe another day.
