I do a slow 3,2,1, freeze and they have to stay frozen until I tell them to melt. I also do "Super Students in 3,2,1" and they clap twice, and fold their hands and put them firmly on their desk (a gentle bang.) A color repeat is good for variety - I say four colors(red, purple, green, black) and they repeat them and put eyes on me. Often I just start to sing, and they join with me. When the song is done, it is my turn to talk.
