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.

    My students and I just love these! They couldn’t wait to see what the next one would be to learn. I love them because they are fun and simple. Plus, there are so many options with this set. Thank you!

    I was tired of the call backs that I have been using for years. This was fun to look through all of them and find a few fun ones I can use throughout the year to freshen things up.

    This is a great resource. I like the way the attention getters are divided into categories for specific needs. Excellent product!
