I just finished up my group of Quiet Critters for the year. They are adorable. I will be using this in Grade 1 to teach the kids to whisper and stay quiet while working independently.
The Quiet Critters don’t like a lot of noise so they live in a soundproof home. They only come out when it’s quiet in the classroom. Students will have opportunities to put one on their desk while working or we will take them out during circle time when we are having classroom discussions. I’m excited to see how this will turn out.
Because I’m teaching French Immersion, I will call them “Mes amis tranquilles"
