I have a variety of ways to get my 6th graders attention. Here are a few:
1. "Freeze please" and raise my hand- kids then raise their hand and stop talking
2. Class, class, class- yes, yes, yes
3. 5,4, 3, out loud and then 2, 1 with just showing fingers
4. Zero sound- hold up a zero with your hand and kids reciprocate
These work great for me and fit in well with my CHAMPS class.
