Example: The preschool teacher in the center where I was the director always had a banana in her teachers bag. She would pull it out and say "Ring, ring, ring" rolling the r's to get the children's attention. Then she would pretend to talk on the banana phone as if getting instructions on what came next, "OH, it's circle time! We better clean up." I was always so impressed at how well it worked to get the kids on task in a positive way.
