I know you all have your favorite attention grabbers you use to get students’ attention in the classroom. But “One, two, three—eyes on me” and clapping random patterns can get a little old. Sometimes you may want to shake up your attention grabbers. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a crazy number of options? It sure would! Check out the options on the graphic to the right and take a look at this master list of attention grabbers from the Confessions of a Nerdy Teacher blog. Teachers have commented to add even more options! I can imagine changing your attention grabbers every few weeks to add zip to your school routine. It’s fun for your students, and it’s fun for you!
Do you have a favorite attention grabber that’s not on the list?
