Attention Getters for Classroom (Editable)



Classroom Attention Getters help you to create a structured and energetic way to engage students! With these fun attention grabbers, you’ll positively influence your classroom culture. An attention getter starts with an action initiated by the teacher that is followed by a reaction from the students. Many of these ATTENTION GETTERS follow a call and response pattern where the teacher gives a specific phrase and students respond in unison with the desired response.

Examples of Classroom Attention Getters

  • Teacher says, “E.T.” and the students respond, “Phone home.”
  • Teacher says, “Freeze!” Students stop in place and say, “Everybody, clap your hands!” then clap 7 times.
  • Teacher says, “Brush your teeth.” Students use pointer fingers as pretend tooth brushes and say, “ch, ch, ch, ch” in a rhythm.
