Classroom call backs are important to getting your student to engage and and influence your classroom culture. ATTENTION GETTERS create a structured and energetic way to engage students and influence your classroom culture. 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. For example- the teacher calls, “E.T.” and the students respond, “Phone home.”

 

ATTENTION GETTERS create a structured and energetic way to engage students and 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. For example- the teacher calls, “E.T.” and the students respond, “Phone home.”

EXAMPLES:

  • 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.
