We all know the importance of attention-getters. So how about this:
“Yo, I’ll tell you what I want, what I really, really want.”
“So tell me what you want, what you really really want!”
“I want you to get your lunchbox and your lanyard and line up at the door in number order. Capiche?”
Capiche! Natalie Stuart is a third-grade teacher in Florida who has gone viral on TikTok for her catchy, pop-culture-inspired attention-getters. Case in point, her reference to “The Office” has racked up more than 21M views. Take a listen for yourself.
And she’s just getting started. To date, Natalie has a 12-part series of attention-getters. We pulled out some of our favorites below, but you can browse them all on her channel. She also has a reputation for bringing in paper cutouts for her lessons, like when she brought in Nelly to teach fractions. She did the same thing with Mrs. Doubtfire and the Super Bowl halftime crew, too. Natalie has some serious talent, and we are loving every second of it.
