Teaching with no voice was interesting!! But it's not the first time I've had to do it - sore throats are something of an occupational hazard for teachers, sadly... Luckily, my classes all know the tambourine as a signal to quiten down and listen, so with the help of some sign language, written instructions and loud whispers, I got by OK!

I also had with me a packet of cherry flavour Soothers, which also helped to ease the sore throat a little:

It's not fun trying to teach with a sire throat is it? Luckily your class recognise the Tambourine. I have to knock loudly on the desk!

Teaching like that would be a bit of a challenge ... at least your class is good!

Cherry soothers would be delicious!! :)

Love the idea of the tamourine - much more fun than clapping. I normally use a slent raised hand, which is effective, if slower. Hope you are also on half term now so you can rest your throat. I woke up with a very sore one today as well

I'm hugely impressed by the voiceless teaching. You must have conspicuous force of personality!
