Quiet Coyote has his mouth closed and his ears ready to listen. When my students are working I ding my little bell and put up my Quiet Coyote. They look at me and put up their Quiet Coyote. (*I remind them that Quiet Coyote is QUIET) When we're lining up, or in the hall, etc. if I put up Quiet Coyote my students silently put up their own Quiet Coyote. It ends the "Shhhh!" sound, which drives me crazy!
