    Criss-Cross Applesauce (sitting cross legged on the floor)
    EEKK (sitting elbow to elbow, knee to knee when buddy reading or working with a pal)
    Give me 5 (eyes on speaker, ears listening, body still etc. for attention)
    There are more just can't think of anymore at the moment...

    dot, dot - not a lot (for using small drops of glue)
    straight and tall off the wall (for walking or standing in line in the hall)
    1, 2, 3, that's enough for me (for getting water)

    I always told mine "pull over you've got a flat." when their shoe what untied. It was quite funny hearing the other students say this to another.

    You get what you get and you don't throw a fit.
    Criss-cross applesauce, spoons in your bowl.

    " You get what you get and you don't get upset" and I also use "If you can here the sound of my voice put your hands on your head (or stomach, shoulders knees)"

    I also feel like I wear out the criss cross applesauce saying everyday.

    "flip and zip" in the hallways (arms crossed and mouth closed. This one is a school wide one and works well for us.

    I say "Get it, Got it, Good!" after I finish giving instructions or explaining something. They usually repeat it to me.

    Oh!! I really like that one. Adds a spin to a very old tired saying.

    Toughen up, Buttercup is very good!! I wish I had been able to use it last year.:)

    I usually say SALAMI
    Stop
    And
    Look
    At
    Me
    Immediately

    I also would use "Ask 3 then me." I used this when I was helping someone else and a child would need a pencil, eraser, or something. Sometimes when we were doing our work & I had to help a few students & it was something simple I'd say ask 3 then me to have them ask a friend for some help, if their friends couldn't help then I would. I hope this doesn't make me sound cold hearted...trying to teach a little self seeking help for the students as well. It really worked because then when I was working with someone I'd remember who was needing help & go check on them & they'd say so & so helped me.

    "You get what you get and you don't throw a fit"

    "One, two, three all eyes on me." Students respond, "One, two, all eyes on you"

    "Zip it, lock it, put it in your pocket" (lining up, in the halls)
    "Stop, look, and listen" (attention getter)
    "Tootsie roll, lolli pop, we've been talking now let's stop" (kids join in after tootsie roll and use hand movements that coordinate with the words - it works great and the kids love it). This is from Dr. Jean.

    Dr. Jean Feldman has a ton of great ideas for sayings. Check out her website at http://www.drjean.org. Check out her cheer cards at this link: http://www.drjean.org/html/monthly_act/act_2004/06_june/06_2004a.html. There are over 32 cheers/sayings and you can print them out!

    I tell mine that are dragging in line that they need to "pick 'em up and put 'em down." Once I explain it to them they think it's really funny!

    water fountain - person behind the one drinking will say (or sometimes it'll be ME saying it) will say "5,4,3,2,1 you're done, let's go"

    to remind them to skip a line when writing rough drafts or any other time I need them to skip a line: (to the tune of row, row your boat) - skip skip skip a line skip a little line...

    gosh, I used to say all kinds of things (usually just on a whim off the top of my head) but now I can't think of ANY of the good ones! UGH!

    "Bubble bubble so you don't get in trouble" or "Blow your bubble so you don't get in trouble. Sometimes I'd ask kids to blow a bubble with their mouth when I needed them to keep quiet for a bit. I wasn't to sure about having them do that, though. I tried not to say that too often. It can also be used to remind them to bubble in their answer choice during multiple-choice tests.

    Instead of "Criss cross applesauce" I use "Bottoms and pretzels" meaning on your bottom, legs folded like a pretzel.

    I often say "This is not the Magic School Bus and I am not Miss Frizzle."

    When a first grader accidentally calls me "Mom" I say "If I look like your mom, she needs a makeover."

    I like to give them titles when I call on them - Captain Ashley, Judge Jake, Senator Jessica, Doctor Aaron etc.
