    I tested this noise meter over the summer and am going to try it with my new class. http://www.ictgames.com/calmCounter.html

    I want two things: a reasonable noise level and not higher, and to NOT nag. Do you have a way of monitoring the noise in your class that you like?

    If there is noise, the balls bounce. However, I can see my students wanting the balls to bounce LOL! But it could be a fun thing to try.

    Ooh, I love the bouncy balls. My daughters are having fun making them bounce!

    My class will also want to make the meter rail into the red. I will let them do so in a controlled way. I might even let each kid come up and personally make it move. After the trial time, I will expect them to use it appropriately.

    That's a good idea. Let them move it around with noise to play and then make it a game to keep it controlled. :thumb:
