Give Me 5
Grade Level(s): K, 1-2, 3-5

Something that I use in my classroom is "give me 5." All I have to do is hold up one of my hands with palm facing out like a stop sign. The fingers represent...

  1. Stop talking
  2. Back against the chair
  3. Feet on the floor
  4. Hands in lap/on desk
  5. Eyes on the teacher
You don't have to say anything and the kids are immediately "fixing" themselves. If you teach this at the beginning of the year when you teach your standard procedures the kids will pick it up in no time.
