Something fun I saw on FB. I didn't go through the comments because I thought it would be fun to see what pops up here. I think it mostly works for K-8, but here's one for HS.

"Don't start packing up yet!"

Tell your feet to walk!

Listening positions, please!

Get your hands out of your pants and go gel your hands.

No potty parties!

Whatever you just took out of your nose, put it in the garbage and wash your hands.

Please stop petting my foot.

You need to stop talking to the back of my head.

(I teach 1st) I love you, too.

No math book? Where did you think you were going?

Bell hasn't rung yet. Sit down.

You're tardy.

I like the way Susie is sitting.

Look at John all ready for our next activity.

"Would you have done that if your mom were standing right behind you?"

"The 'Excuse me' should be just as loud as the belch."

"Read the board." OMG--I want to jerry-rig a Staples "That was easy" button and wear it around my neck so I can just press it 73x a day! All the information is literally written On. The. Board, and I included pictures. :/

1. Your job is to take care of you. I will make sure everyone else is doing what they need to do.

2. What are you doing? What should you be doing? Please do that now.

If you weren't listening, ask somebody who was.

Hands on top, everybody stop!

Hocus pocus, everybody focus!

Show me you're ready.

We aren't running, we're walking with purpose!

Make a better choice.

"Heads in a row so we can go"

"Who are you in charge of? Who do you need to worry about?"



Sometimes it's just the teacher tone. True story, one time I was in NYC and we were waiting at an intersection. My son stepped out and I said "stop" in the most teachery voice that not only did he stop, but a random dude jaywalking sheepishly stepped back onto the curb!

Wednesday is an ASYNCHRONOUS learning day.

Cameras on mics off.

Your mics on. Do you have a question?

Stop playing Fortnite and start your assignment.

We don't really need to see you doing backflips during math class.

Your screen is all jumpy.

I can't hear anyone.

1,2, 3, eyes on me

Touch your name on the top of your paper.
(meaning, check to see if you actually put your name on your paper after I instructed you to do so AND gave you time to do so.) Pet peeve of my- seeing a few no names on papers when grading them, having to go back to enter a few grades in the grade book after solving the mystery.
