Just curious if anyone out there uses a doorbell in their classroom. I've seen post where teachers are using the doorbell for transition times, to switch stations, or to focus their students. I was wondering the pros and cons using a doorbell. Thanks in advance for your thoughts!

Why not?

If it gets their attention, and it's a pleasant sound, why not? You could get ones online. If you have a smartboard there are buzzers and other timers on Gynzy.com.

I use a hanging chime. I love the sound.

In our old building, I had an extremely squeaky door. People used to ask me why I didn't oil it, but I never told them that it was so I could hear if the principal came in quietly for a surprise observation.

Bells on the doorknob

My friend had a sneaky P, so she kept bells hanging on her doorknob. She said it was so no kindergartener could escape, but it really so the P couldn't sneak in.

Mine is connected to the office

It was originally intended for transitions.
However, I have some issues in my class this year that need IMMEDIATE attention. I keep the doorbell in my pocket and ring as needed. It has been great and kids are none the wiser. I just can't share the idea with others as the office would be ringing all day.

I used to use chimes as a count down for transition. I liked it.

I wasted my money on a nice wireless doorbell. Two problems...
1. The students can’t hear it if they are all talking at once. It takes me walking around saying, “SHHHHHH, I’m ringing the bell.” As they eventually stop talking they can hear it.
2. I could never find the remote when I needed it. I tried keeping it in my pocket but it would ring every time I sat down.
