Powerpoint with accompanying sound effects to control 'chatter' when working on tasks - designed for a particularly noisy year nine group!
For anyone unfamiliar with Mario, the green mushrooms signify 'lives'. I allow the class to discuss ideas etc. in a whisper with their neighbour but if the no More…ise level increases or they are off task they lose a 'life'. Three lives lost leads to silent working.
I've uploaded sound files too but unfortunately most of them aren't 'recognised'. Some people have had success downloading the PP with sound intactso finger's crossed.
