Default Teaching classroom language

A good idea to teach young learners the sentences and questions to use in every day activities in the classroom I've created some flashcards with pictures and the sentence or question I want students learn.
I take pictures from coloring books where there are isolated items (desks, pencils, children, blackboards...) and I adapt the picture to my own necessities.
I've got three categories: actions (such as read, write, draw...), questions ( may I go to the toilet, may I drink water, can you help me...) and expressions ( See you, one moment please)
The pictures are just an item, for example for the expression one moment please I have a clock, or for reading I've got just a book.
At the beginning of the class I always start by showing the pictures, say the word or sentence and make students repeat, then I ask for clarification.
Another idea could be let a child be the teacher and show and say the words and sentences.
In addition I have displayed around the classroom pictures with the same sentences and words, to remind them and to help them speaking to me in English.

Cool... but where are they?

Other ones are: "Quite/ listen, please." "Open your book/ close your book" "don't shout."
