title explanation:i teach first grade. it's pretty fun. anyway, 22 six year olds can get a little loud. there are times when i need to get them quiet in a quick-fast way. some teachers count to 5, some count backwards from 5, some flicker the lights. all effective, i am sure. i do things similar, but not quite the same. i (in my loud-ish teacher voice) say "HE-EY!" my kids stop and say "HO-O!" then the are quiet and ready to listen. it cracks me up every time. :)
