Four Fun Attention Grabbers for Kids to Increase On-Task Behavior
Developed by Autism Specialist and Music Therapist, Michelle Lazar, MA, MT-BC, these rhymes are designed to capture attention, and engage students, particularly in group settings. Each chant has a fun theme or prop to make them memorable and motivating. The target age range is pre-school through first grade, although some are easy to adapt for higher elementary grades as well.
