  33. Mrs. Shepherd, great attempt on activating the prefrontal cortex! With WBT, we want everything that we do to be quick and clean. We don't want one second of instructional time wasted. Some of your class-yes variations are a bit too long. It's ok to be longer if they include content (class-capital of Illinois, yes-Springfield), but the "fun" ones need to be a bit shorter, and should closely mirror the teacher's part. Here are 10 Certification points with a mega bonus of 10 Certification points for the extra effort!

  35. I most definitely have this question under control! The class-yes was one of the first techniques I employed in my classroom four years ago. I cannot describe how much fun my classes and I have had inventing variations!

    7. (voice high to low) Class! Class! Class! (same inflections) Yes! Yes! Yes!
    8. (voice low then high as if asking a slow question) claaaaaaaa-aaaaaas? Yeeeeeee-eeeees?
    9. (voice high low high with stomping feet) Class! Class! Class! (same actions) Yes! Yes! Yes!
    10. (using different accents i.e. irish, spanish, country, etc) Oh my, class! Or Gee willikiers, class! (it’s funny to see them try to replicate the accent and the accent change gets their attention immediately since it’s so strange) Oh my, yes! Or Gee Willikers, yes! etc.
    I will follow my WBT peers and try for some BONUS POINTS!

  38. Variety is the spice of life and when trying to get the attention on 23 focused students it is only appropriate to have a large list of ‘Class, Yes’ chants ready for delivery. If we fail to vary our delivery, students will fail to engage.

    1. Class-a-doodle do, Yes-a-doodle do.
    2. Class-a-class-a-ding dong, Yes-a-yes-a-ding dong.
    3. (In the tune of baseball-themed CHARGE chant) Da na na na na na, Class! Da na na na na na, Yes!
    4. Class-a-re, class a ro, class a roo, Yes-a-re, yes a ro, yes a roo.
    5. Classini, Yesini.
    6. Oh my class, Oh my yes.
    7. Class I can, Yes I can.
    8. Class, I’m focused. Yes, I’m focused.
    9. (Begins soft and ends loud) Classity, classity, classity, class. Yessity, Yessity, Yessity, Yes!

    Claps, stomps, snaps
    10. Variations claps and snaps and feet stomping before or after Class, Yes.
    a. (Clap, clap, snap, snap) Class. (Clap, clap, snap, snap,)Yes.
    b. (Clap, stomp) Class, Class. (Clap, stomp) Yes, yes.
    c. (Clap with a slide off of palm-swish noise, twice) Class, Yes.

    Holiday themed
    11. (In Santa voice) Class, Class, Class. Yes, Yes, Yes.
    12. (ghost voice or witch voice) CCLLAASSSS, YYYEEESSSS
    13. Gobble, Gobble, Class ,Class. Gobble, Gobble Yes, Yes.
    14. (With hands folded by chin in sappy love voice) Class, Yes.

  41. In my previous post from Chapter 5 I noted that I had previously started Class-Yes in my classroom. Maybe this is one reason I slowly stopped using it, I might have had difficulty coming up with variety. I’m not sure why I didn’t think to sit down to come up with other ways. So thanks for the opportunity to gather other’s ideas and keep these posted at my desk for future use!

    1. Verb Class! Predicate Yes!
    2. Classy Classy! Yessy Yessy!
    3. Yo Class! Yo Yes!
    4. 2x3 class! 6 yes! (use of other facts as well)
    5. Hi Class! Ho Yes!
    6. Class! (voice going low to high) Yes! (voices going low to high)
    7. REACH class! To The Moon Yes!
    8. Isn’t the right Class? Yes Mrs. Cunningham!
    9. Warriors Class! Warriors Ces!
    10. Yahoo Class! Yahoo Yes!
    11. Thunder Class! Lightening Yes!
    12. Zippity Class! Doda Yes!
    13. Ting Class! Aling Yes!
    14. Clap Clap Class! Clap Clap Yes!
    15. Ch Ch Class! Ch Ch Yes! (also can vary the ch ch rhythm)
    16. Hola Classa! Yes Maestro!

    Of course, all of these can have different voices, such as high to low, low to high, chipmunk, robot, squeaky even Darth Vader like.

    1. Class Yes
      During the last two weeks of 2013 I found Whole Brain Teaching and tried class-yes. I knew there was no point in implementing WBT into my classroom, so I just starting using Class-yes. What a difference it made to my last two weeks. When students are checked out not listening, Class-yes worked wonders to redirect student attention. Here are ten variations some I have used and others I plan on implementing in the fall.
      1. 1Normal voice – Class –yes
      2. Classsssss – yessssss
      3. Claaaaaas - yeeeeees
      4. Whisper voice– Class –yes
      5. Class – yes with my hands waving.
      6. Class – yes – (Cl low tones– and remaining part with high tones).
      7. Class Class Class Class Class – yes yes yes yes yes
      8. Oh Class – oh yes
      9. Say the word class very quickly
      10. Class in a Mickey Mouse Voice (or Minnie, I might even try Donald or Daisy
      .
      Through the book and various videos I can see how I will need to vary my “Class-yes“ to keep student attention. I am looking forward to seeing what else comes naturally as I use WBT next year.

    2. Variety is the spice of life isn't it Mrs. C!? 2 thoughts about your ideas - on #4, try having the students repeat the entire number sentence. In other words, you would say, "2x3 Class" and they would respond, "2x3=6 Yes". This will solidify the fact in their minds, even those who struggle with it. And on #9, just look for a spelling error. :) Here are your 25 certification points plus 10 bouns points!

    3. Diana,
      Good job at beginning to vary your Class-Yes. Here is a thought for you. With even just 2 weeks left in the school year, be brave and attempt new things! We learn a lot when we teach something for the first time and it makes teaching it a second time so much easier! It's ok if the kids will only use it for a little while. The knowledge you will gain will put you so much further ahead the next school year when you implement the new piece again! Watch out for those pesky writing errors! (2nd sentence) Here are 20 certification points for you.

    1. Pioneer,
      Good ideas to infuse content into your Class-Yes. One thought about #12 & 13 - when the kids give the answer, have them say the whole equation. For example, you say, "Class, 2x2" the kids say, "Yes 2x2=4". This will solidify the content in their brains, especially for your struggling students.

    1. Good thinking about your class-yes ideas. While they are creative, the WBT team would love to see more actual "class" followed by "yes" in your responses. It is ok to throw in some of the seasonal or cutesy attention getters here and there but we don't want those to be the bulk of our attention getting strategy. Here are 10 certification points plus 5 BONUS POINTS for the extra effort!

  87. Chapter 6
    I love class-yes; it truly is “Teacher Heaven”. It grabs your student’s attention and others from around the school. However, in order to keep it going you need to say more than just class and yes. Students have to respond in whatever way you say class. I introduce a new way about every two weeks to keep it interesting. Below are 10 of my suggestions for class. I love classic rock and that is reflected in my variations. I hope that everyone finds it enjoyable.
    1. (Sung to Zippety-Do-Da) Classity class class---Yessity, yes.
    2. (Spanish) Clase, clase—si, si
    3. (French) classe—oui
    4. (Sung to Mary had a little lamb) Class, Cl,cl,cl,cl,cl class---yes yes yes, yes yes yes
    5. Oh humble class…. Oh yes, my beautiful queen
    6. (Spell it out) C-L-A-S-S, class-----Y-E-S, yes
    7. (Like Heyyyy… boo boo) Hey Classy classy…..Hey Yessy Yessy
    8. (Sung to “you gotta fight for your right to party) You gotta fight for your class…. yessssssssss
    9. (Clapping hands and looking sweet ) Oh most wonderful amazing class…..Oh yes most wonderful amazing teacher
    10. (Sung to Let it Be) ohhhh, cllllasss, clllasss…..yesssss, oh yessss
    11. (sung to Walk this way) Class this way…..yes this wayyyy
    12. (Sung to Oh baby, baby) … oh classy classy… oh Yessy Yessy
    13. (Sung to Born to Be wild)…My class is willlllld…..yesssss we areeeee.
    14. (Sung to We are the Champions) We are the best class….yesss we areeeee.
    15. I said a class chicka class….I said a yes chicka yes.

  92. Julia,
    Good ideas for class-yes. I like that you used a mixture of everyday, holiday, and thematic attention getters. Just a reminder that when we do class-yes, the students are to fold their hands on their desks and look at you. Hands lead to distractions and if they are folded on the desk, the attention is on you, not what is in or around the desk. Here are 25 certification points!

      This is a great variety of class-yes options! Remember that after the students respond "yes", they put their clasped hands on their desks to avoid distractors so it works better not to include gestures with the "yes" response. Here are 25 certification points and a 10 point bonus!
