Wouldn’t that be great? If us teachers could get a hall pass and leave the room to collect ourselves? Heck, even just to use the restroom when we need to! I know I’d love that over dancing around my classroom until lunch or planning 😉
Reagan created this great linky for teachers to take a “hall pass” from our room and share some! So here’s mine.
S- Signal to get students attention. Honestly, this totally varies with my kiddos! They are some wild and crazy yahoos this year, but usually they stop and give attention when I ask. During stations, I have a Smartboard timer that goes off and makes funny noises like trumpets, drums, squawks, etc. They automatically rotate quietly when they hear this. When I want their attention, I use “Clap twice if you hear me” or of course I have a little fun and occasionally say things like “Stand on your head if you haer me!” this always makes for fun reactions 🙂 I’d like to get into a little more whole brain teaching and use their signals. Any suggestions on these for fourth graders? 🙂
