Classroom Management Idea

I have some VERY talkative third grade students this year. They are constantly needing me to change how I manage them because after about 2 weeks “Give me 5” isn’t as effective. Read this article:

Why Silent Modeling is a Powerful Strategy

I have tried this and man does it work. They realize they have to watch me closely to understand all of what I want done. They know the repercussions for not doing what they are supposed to do (a trip to the behavior log, or having to re-do whatever it is they did wrong–transition, packing up, etc.). Thanks for sharing this idea Mr. Linsin!
