I’m on the children’s church teaching team at my church. I teach the younger group, which range from 3-6 years old. They are hilarious, sweet, and sometimes just plain squirrely! If something hits them funny it can be so easy for them to get distracted and before I know it they aren’t paying attention anymore!
Maybe that’s happened to you too. Keeping the kids’ attention to maintain order in the classroom is essential, especially because you are sharing with them the most important message of all—the message of the Gospel! Here are some tips seasoned teachers have used to give kids a “reset” and regain their attention.

“1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10! Ready or not, here I come!” Without fail, whenever I just start playing “hide and seek” in class without giving any warning, I have got the kids’ attention! What am I going to do next? Could it be fun?
“Why are you eating toilet paper?!” It seemed like a reasonable question, but my toddler didn’t bother to answer as she crammed another piece of (clean) toilet paper into her mouth.
“Did you bring your dinosaurs?” asked Riley as she rushed into class and scanned the room for Fluffy and Maximus. These T-rex twins are a favorite with many kids in my class, but others prefer my bright yellow Minions, Stuart and Kevin, or one of the many other behavior incentives that show up in my class regularly.
