Celebration and Attention Chants!

Yesterday on my Facebook page there was a post from Teaching with a Twist on Attention Grabbers used in her classroom.
I thought I would share with you what chants I use for attention and for celebrations.
They are great and can be added to...
Round of applause.
Pat yourself on the back.
Kiss your brain.
Or
Lights out.
Chime rang.
Simon Says...to get attention.

TRY THEM...YOU'LL LIKE THEM!
