The varying clapping engages students to be able to listen and understand what is being asked of them and to cooperate with the lesson presented. Having the attention of the students before they begin working on an assignment aids the confusion of the assignment and allows for questions if one student is not understanding what is being asked. Students thrive on routine because growing up its something that some is all they know. Being able to incorporate a routine in the classroom helps students succeed in their growth but also creates flexibility because they can adapt a new routine in their routine styled lifestyle.

After just watching the last video of this teacher's attention-getting strategy, I thought it was important to see how he practices that. I like the repetition he uses in engaging the students because the more often they do this routine, the more likely they will be able to identify that it is attention time. Attention-getting is a struggle in the classroom sometimes and clapping is a great way to get their attention quickly and also having them repeat makes it fun for them.

I really appreciate how this teacher uses clapping as a form of getting their attention using a positive uplifting happy clapping sound that immediately got their attention.  Students respond well to the Teachers positive additude and soft spoken but stern technique.
