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!!

When you enter this classroom...inspirational teaching poster

Give me five is a great way to get students attention with out yelling. It is simple and something the students will understand. Discussing and posting this up on the wall will help the students to know what is expected of them.

This is so much better than a concern/problem box. I am pretty sure when I co-taught we used something similar to this :) reminds me of the Snaps Cup from Legally Blonde!!

Each time a student BLURTS out loud without raising hand they have to take one down. Last person to have all 3 gets rewarded! This would def work in my class
