Have you ever used Class-Yes to get your class' attention? I LOVE it and it's so much fun to vary its delivery.
Some new ideas I have been trying are shouting out math facts (addition only, for now) and having my kids reply with the answer. For example, doing some doubles one time, or all combinations of ten for another. It typically takes me 2-3 times to have the entire class' attention, and the extra practice never hurts :)
One thing I am loving this time of year is adding in some additional words so it's not always "Class" that I am saying out to the group. Since it's Halloween season, my new phrase this week is "Hocus Pocus" and the kids reply "Everybody Focus."
