<< I use a bell-hop bell which I bought
for a few bucks at a stationary store. I also give the verbal command of
"Heads up, eyes on me." If that doesn't get their attention, I casually
tell the nearest kids that maybe this class doesn't want to leave when the
end of class bell rings. This REALLY gets to junior high kids who want
every opportunity to socialize with their friends between classes.
I do similar things...and yes...I agree the light flashing doesn't calm the
kids on the high school level.
What is a bell-hop bell?
I don't know why but when I can't get their attention, I say "Yo" and it
cracks the kids up and I get their attention. I don't use it a lot but I
think that they are so shocked that this middle age woman is saying yo E
