I always say in a regular toned voice, "if you are listening touch your ear". If not everyone is tuned in I will continue with "touch your nose". If needed continue with touching other places like elbow, eyes, knees, until the group is with you.

Our school also does a "Give me Five" program that is campus wide K - 2. We have a large poster of a hand. Each finger starting with pinky: eyes on speaker, mouth quiet, body still, ears listening, hands free. Anytime an adult holds up their hand and says "give me five" the children stop and look at them. There are always the few that you have to wait to get their attention.
