Monday Made It {Voice Levels Freebie}

I feel like a Monday Made It slacker!  Every week I make less and less, but I need more and more!  

I decided I wanted to make a voice level chart like the ones I keep seeing all over Pinterest.  I don't mind my students talking...I'm not one of those teachers that need silence as long as they are working.  So, I thought this might be helpful for them to distinguish between appropriate levels of sound at different times.

I saw the above image on Pinterest and liked how it was round and tied with ribbons.  You can find it on Polka Dot Lesson Plans.  So I set out to make something similar.  Here is what I came up with:

I like it!  I just printed the circles, laminated them, and tied them together with some ribbon from Hobby Lobby.  I put a ring through the top circle and will hang it somewhere in my classroom.  I plan to use a clothespin to indicate the level.  If you would like this product, you can down load it for free if you are a fan of mine on Facebook.

Simply look for the freebie picture below on my Facebook page.  If you aren't a fan, you simply need to like my page to download it.

I also took some containers from the Dollar Spot at Target and tried to make them look a little better.  I just added some washi tape to the bottom (I tried to do it to the top, but it didn't want to fit correctly without bunching up).  Then I used some sticky letters I had left over to label them for supplies that I keep out.

I might put the polka dot tape on the white ones too...I was using the purple but it didn't look good on the black because you can see through it.  

Can't wait to see the projects everyone else completed!  I finally understand what Pinterest is for!


  1. I used that same idea with sharpened/unsharpened pencils last year. It really worked! Yours are a ton cuter than mine. I might just redo them!
