Sometimes getting children to listen when they are being very loud can be hard to do. Especially if they outnumber you!

One thing we did in the day care that I worked in was to flash the lights in the room to let the kids know you needed their attention. Once they got quiet we would speak in a soft, but not too soft to hear voice. They might have to strain a tiny bit to hear you, but you were more apt to keep their attention since the volume of the room changed so dramatically.

Not sure why, but it worked very well!
