Attention Getting Signals: Let’s Mix It Up!

Whether you’re a new or experienced teacher, strategies for getting your students’ attention are essential to your classroom-management toolkit. When it is time for students to stop, focus, or transition to a new activity, attention-getters should do the job quickly and efficiently.  As with many classroom strategies, what works for one teacher may not work for another, and the same may be true from class to class. It’s important to be playful, try out different signals for different situations, and don’t be afraid to incorporate movement, music, or rhyme! 

Reflection Question:
Why is it helpful to use different signals in different situations?
