Tap Light Posters – Voice Level

PDF, Word | 5 pages|Grades: 1 - 6

A set of posters to help create voice-level expectations in the classroom.

Setting Up Classroom Expectations

The importance of setting clear expectations at the beginning of the school year cannot be overstated. It’s vital to establish routines and rules with your students. Doing so leads to a classroom that can almost run itself!

Tap lights are a super affordable and effective way to establish expectations in your classroom. These posters will help guide your students when they are working independently or in groups.

To use this resource, display the posters on a wall in your classroom and attach a tap light to the circle on each. When your students need to be at a certain voice level, tap the light on the correct poster. For instance, during classroom presentations, tap the light on the poster with number 3 to remind students they are to use their presentation voices.

An editable version is available via the drop-down menu. This will allow you to change the language on each poster, as we know some schools have universal terms that are used. Simply choose the download that works best for you and set those expectations!
