Thanks to Mrs. Hanneken, we now have a magical wind chime in our room. (Her wonderful idea taken from the Daily Five material) If you make it ring... the class gets quiet! The students love it and I don't have to be the one to get everyone quiet. It allows students to help and lead.
If I catch them doing something good... I will ask them if they want to go fishing and they can go over and pick out a fish. Whatever it says on the back they get! This works really well to highlight students that are doing a great job!
