Gestures and body language 
“Do the (English) gesture for ‘be quiet’/ ‘stop’/ ‘please’. Can you remember what it is?” 
“What does this gesture mean?... Good. Can you do the gesture and say what it means at the same time?” 
“Put your finger on your lips… Good, but pointing up… Got it. Now, what does that mean?”

Moving desks and chairs 
“Move two/ three/ four desks together and put your chairs around them” 
“Push all the desks back against the walls”/ “Move your tables back (without making a noise/ one at a time starting at the front)”

 “Any volunteers to move these tables?” 
“This table’s in the way, isn’t it? Where can we move it? Is there any space over there?”
“Move your chairs (and tables) so you can all see the TV/ whiteboard/ students performing at the front” 
“Move them (a bit) further back/ forward/ left/ right/ apart/ closer together/ towards the board”
