Teaching Strategies – Gaining Children’s Attention


Nereida Diaz: Well we learned, my assistant
and I, we learned something that we call “Hocus Pocus, everybody focus,” and I go like that. “Hocus Pocus, everybody focus,” so they
just look at me and go like that. Nereida: Hocus Pocus, everybody… Children: Focus! Nereida Diaz: And even, they finish the sentence,
and they focus on me. Nereida: Hocus Pocus, everybody… Children: Focus! Nereida: Focus; everybody focus. Nereida Diaz: After they do some exercise,
they get so active that we want to calm them. If they’re like, too overactive, we just
say “Hocus Pocus, everybody focus,” and that helps a lot.
