ask the class to tell me the classroom teacher's "attention getter." Once in a while I will get lucky and use the teacher's signal without asking first. One neat one: The teacher had a wound-up music box on her desk. If I lifted the lid, music began to play. That was the signal that the class needed to immediately be quiet and wait for instruction. The music didn't stop until the room was quiet. At the end of the day, there needed to be music left on the box, or there was some consequence. Brilliant!
