Attention Grabbers for the Classroom

Let’s Talk a Little Bit About Attention Grabbers.

Christmas time for teachers in the classroom can equal crazy time in the classroom.

So, on my Instagram story if you go look, you will see that I shared a couple ways to get kid’s attention simply by saying something like “Watch me Whip” and the kids would say, “Watch me Nae Nae!”  They would have to be silent afterwards. No talking.  This is a way to grab their attention.

My son and his friends, who I drive home everyday from school watched it. They said that that was a really old song, and it was really not cool of me. So, they came up with some of their own. They said, “How about “Frosty!” and then the kids would say “The Snowman”.  I thought it was cute!  Another one that they said was “Up on the Housetop” and the kids would say “Reindeer Paws”.  And then the students would be silent.

Then, one that a lot of you should know and one a lot of young kids would know would be “Kiki, do you love me?”, they can make a the little heart with their fingers, and of course, silent afterward.

So, I thought why don’t we have some fun and you guys think of any attention grabbers that you can think of, put it in the comment section below.  One that I always used was “Hey Hey!” and the kids would say “Ho Ho!” Another one is “Flat Tire” and the kids would go “Shhhhh.”

So let’s have some fun and you guys share Attention Grabbers you have and use in the classroom by putting them in the comment section below.  By the end of the week, I’ll take all of your comments that you all can come up with for attention grabbers, and I’ll put them in a document for you  to download so you have them because we don’t want all you guys to lose your mind during Christmas time!

Check back in about a week and I’ll type them all up for you and you can download them for free! Have a great one!
