Love using fun sayings and jingles with my students to get their attention. Not only does it get their attention but some of these attention grabbers also state what I am expecting from them. Always make sure students know the expectations!
Julia Donaldson's Gruffalo is a story with lots of humor, cool rhymes and text. It is a great story to act out with funny voices. Check out these DIY: Wooden spoon Gruffalo puppets. How cute and easy for small hands to use!
