51 Engaging Classroom Call-Backs to Use With Your Students

Classroom callbacks are a fantastic way to get the attention of your students while keeping them engaged. I use different classroom callbacks for different parts of the day. I tell my students that I like to keep them guessing, so they always need to be listening closely.

The first week of school, I introduce 1-2 class call-backs, and as the year goes on, I slowly introduce more and more. I create these posters as a visual reminder for my students. They are posters with some of my favorite call-backs, and they are so fun!
