Believe it or not, I use these with my grade 8s! They think it's hilarious, and it really works. I've found it especially helpful during noisier activities (drama especially!) because I'll just say the cue word quietly while standing near a group, and they may be the only group to respond. Then I'll do the cue word again, and since the rest of the class has heard the first group, they respond.

Since I have older kids, they would suggest the call and reponse phrases, and we'd switch them up every few weeks. So we ended up with

Peanut Butter/Jelly
Spongebob/Squarepants
TomAto/ToMAHto

Oodles of others, but I can't remember what we used!
