I use these Whole Brain Teaching attention getters on a daily basis with my ELL students. These attention getters are a great way to improve your classroom management. I usually pick one or two to teach the class at the beginning of the year. Then every month or every few weeks, I introduce a new attention getter, which my students can't wait for!!

Reading Response Forms - letter to the author- I love the idea of showing students how to write letters by having them write to their favorite authors. I think that this template would be great to introduce letter writing to your students, and then they could write their own letters on their own later on. I think that they would really enjoy this activity.
