Do you use attention grabbers or class call backs?
They are a MUST HAVE in my opinion.
However I truly LOATHE “class class, yes yes”. And sometimes you want to change it up from the clapping pattern repeat.
So I have some fun alternatives. I leave them out so that any of our classroom visitors know what “works” with my kiddos.
If you’ve never used class call backs before – it’s super simple. You say the first part to grab the students’ attention, they reply with the second part.
So, you’d say . . .
“Macaroni and Cheese!”
and the kiddos would stop what they were doing (and their talking!) and answer . . .
