My signals..

When I want the class to be quiet, I will say, "Hey!" (drag it out a little) and the children respond, "Ho!" (Drag it out a little bit) and then they say "SHHHHH!" and put their fingers on their lips. It works every time. Our PE teacher uses this method for PE class so you know it must be good to get over the gym noise.

I also use a clapping rhythm for them to repeat..such as ....clap..clap..clap,clap,clap. We use this for entire school assemblies. It is also a good one! I sometimes have to do it through twice. The bell is good as well. I ring it once and they have to stop what they are doing and put their eyes on me! Good luck!
