So I recently created this topic meter for a student who is often distracted by the many millions of things he is thinking about...he often tries to bring his teachers or other students along for the ride by talking about all of his wonderful thoughts and ideas. I made this topic meter to minimize the verbal reminders to stay on topic and almost act as a self (with help) monitor of where he stands in reference to his work. I have used and seen others use similar meters for other things like the volume of your voice or the energy output of your body (calm vs. wiggly) I think they are a fantastic visual reminder. All of the students have responded very well to them! Plus they are just so cute! Lets be honest there are many adults we wouldn't mind using one of these for right???? Wouldn't it make meetings so much shorter? Think about it?
