This noise-o-meter can help remind students what the appropriate volume should be in the classroom at specific times. This corresponds to the NYS teaching standard Element IV.3: Teachers manage the learning environment for the effective operation of the classroom. a. Teachers establish, communicate, and maintain clear standards and expectations for student behavior.
If the clip is on Table Voice, then only the members of their table should be able to hear their voices. Teacher Voice is their louder speaking voice. This is generally the voice they use when they are reading or sharing with the class.
I like this chart because it can show kids the different voice levels that they may need to use in different situations. I like how the pictures demonstrate how loud the children can be. A great idea for the elementary ed teachers!
