Quiet critters: In times of quite needed, pass out quiet critters. Take away from those caught talking. At the end of the activity, anyone who still has a quiet critter gets a prize, point, or whatever system used.

Love this idea from Delights and Designs… You could easily extend this for more able pupils to contain more word types. Children are encouraged to come up and pick a word from the teacher. They then place the stick in the correct pot. To further extend, they could then pick a word from each cup and create a sentence. Perfect for assessment!
