In my classroom, I gather student attention by choral response.
I say, “Students, may I have your eyes…” (and then pause). Students, in unison, respond “and ears!” Then students are silently awaiting further instructions (with attention – eyes and ears – on the teacher).
I have this poster predominately displayed in my classroom (I even colored in the eyes and ears).
