    • Good afternoon howeslol!
      Thanks for getting in touch :) If you check out page 3 of the resource in the bottom right hand corner there is a small picture example of the resource showing one arrow/warning light being used on the Noisometer - The additional arrows and warning lights are spares. I hope that clears things up! :)

    • I thought they might be spares! Thank you it does :)

  • Hi,
    I work with a child with Speech and Language difficulties. Would it be possible to get a speed-omiter to encourage him to slow down his speech? My aim would be to use it as a game at first, saying certain words in different speeds and then I would want to introduce it to the classroom for general use.

  • I would prefer it if 'noisometer' was spelt 'noise-o-meter', whilst not really a word I would prefer it if it were spelt as accurately as possible. That way I could indicate why this item is called a 'noise-o-meter' that is, because it has the words 'noise' and 'meter' in it = we are measuring the amount of noise in the class.

  • Hi there aninhadiniz, thanks so much for commenting on this resource. I've had a look and all you need to do is cut out the arrows and circles on the second page and then using a spit pin attach the arrow of your choice ontop of the circle on the first page. You can then use the arrow to point to what you would like your class to do "Talk, Whisper or Silent". Hope this helps and if you get confused there is an example in the bottom right hand corner! :)

      Hi Ayan,
      My son is too loud at home and even outside while travelling in metro, public buses, malls.. Can it be used in public places.
      I am still not clear how to use it and I can't find the example what you have mentioned which is in the bottom right hand corner. Pls need your assistance

    • Hi neeldhir,
      Thank you for commenting! :) You can definitely use the resource wherever you'd like.
      The example is on the second page after 'e.g.' You can use the arrow to indicate what level of noise is appropriate in the situation you are in. This can then be reinforced by giving the three warnings on the side if they are not following the noise level you have asked for.
      I hope that helps :)

  • Hi there janetteacher, the different arrows are so you can choose which colour you would like to use :)

  • Why does it have more than one arrow?

    , Aug 29th
A great way to monitor the level of noise in your classroom. Simply cut out the arrow and attach using a split pin. A great behaviour management tool!
