Classroom Attention Getters
If you’re been teaching for any period of time you know how much time can be wasted trying to regain the attention of your students. I’m sure you’ve tried all the tricks I’ve tried.
Stand silently and wait for them to notice. Turn off the lights. Start counting from 1. Heaven forbid, raise your voice! Or, talk in a whisper which nobody hears because the entire class is too noisy.
Imagine how much time [and frustration] you’d save if you had a fun way to get your students’ attention quickly. These 35 FUN and FREE classroom attention getters are ready to print and hang up in your classroom as a handy reference tool. Keep reading for ideas on how to use them to calm your own noisy classroom.
Prepping the Call and Response Cards for Your Classroom
These attention getters are easy to print and use! I suggest printing them on white card stock for durability. Be sure to laminate them so you can use them for years to come! Punch a hole in the corner of each card, and attach them to a book ring clip. This set of colorful jumbo ring clips is my personal favorite to use! Hang them in the front of your room on a command hook, and they’ll always be available.
Favorite Call and Response Phrases
Here are a few of my favorite classroom attention getters featured in this handy and FREE printable set:
- T: Classity Class? S: Yessity Yes!
- T: Winner, Winner S: Chicken Dinner
- T: If you’re ready to listen say Hooray. S: Hooray!
- T: Goodness Gracious! S: Great balls of fire!
I’ve included 35 different attention getters so you can rotate them out often. I find that my little learners stop listening to phrases like this after several weeks, so I like to change things up to keep them focused.
