Do you use callbacks or attention grabbers with your class?
I think they’re important and work well. Some classes do well with changing to a new phrase every month or so and some classes are better with sticking to the same all year long. You’ll find what fits your class best and may change from year to year.
If you haven’t used callbacks in your class before, you simply say the teacher phrase,
and the students stop what they’re doing and respond back with
“Aye aye captain!
Sometimes the students will surprise you and come up with a new callback on their own that you can try out. Or it’s fun to change callbacks for the different holidays.
I created a free printable with the 25 class callbacks so you can easily choose a new phrase to use.
Or print it and put it on a clipboard hanging up in your classroom. Attach a clothespin to the callback you’re currently using. You can then put it in your sub-notes when needed so they can easily see what callback you are using and be able to get the attention of your class just the same.
