Attention-Getting Signals: Mix It Up

Kindergarten teacher Mary Abdul-Wajid describes the different attention getting signals that she uses in her class. When students need to freeze and put materials away, Mary sings a jingle and the students put their hands on their heads. If students need to practice self control, the class will sign a song to remind students where their hands go. When Mary needs to get students' attention quickly, she rings a bell. Mary explains how using different signals helps to keep students engaged.
