A dog training clicker for your classroom?!?
*Let me give you some background information.*
My students walk in a straight line through the halls. The Line Leader is the ONLY student who listens to my directions while the rest follow and watch the person in front of them. I will tell the line leader, "Go and listen to my voice" while I stay behind letting my kids pass. Then I will say, "Stop" for the leader to stop.
Instead of using my voice, I purchased a dog training clicker. One click will mean GO and two clicks will mean STOP. I have heard of other teachers using clickers for a variety of things. This idea is nothing new and probably originated with nuns using it in Catholic Schools (or so I heard). I just wanted to share with others who might not of heard of this classroom management technique. I am excited to try it starting the first day of school!
