PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This packet includes printables to create signs for your classroom to remind the students to use silent hand signals during group lessons. I use these hand signals to keep my lessons focused and avoid the class getting off topic.

I can easily differentiate if a child has a question, wants to provide an answer or if he wants to share a story that may or may not relate. I call on them accordingly. ;)

This set includes several versions of the three signs that you can print onto colored paper...or leave as is and just hang them up. Easy Peasy.

Please visit my blog, www.CFClassroom.com for daily tips and photos on organizing and managing your classroom. This product was featured on 8/17/12.

I'm so excited to debut my new line of products: Blackline Design

While I love a classroom theme, I understand that it's not everyone's "thing." I wanted to create some products that...
A) could be used with ANY theme / color scheme
B) would look fabulous on their own
C) would be cost effective for teachers to print and use

My Blackline Design Products were created so that you can print them at home or school without using up oodles of expensive ink. Once you print it once, they can then be duplicated using a photocopier.

You can print on colored cardstock or scrapbook paper to add your own personality to it. They look AMAZING against brightly colored backgrounds.

I love how clear and simple the signals are. I didn't realize from the description and the fact that there were 17 pages that there are only 3 hand signals shown on several different backgrounds. I would have rather paid $1 or $2 for the background I want, rather than $4 for several backgrounds I don't need.

Product Questions & Answers

n/a
On  August 8, 2013,  Buyer asked:
I purchased this product and am in the midst of printing the format that I like. I attempted to print pages 18-20. Pages 19 and 20 printed just fine, but for some reason page 18 prints as a blank page. I have tried to print it numerous times, rebooted computer/printer, etc. How can we fix this?

Thank you!

Hi,
Thanks for your purchase. Are you able to view page 18 on your screen? If so, is it showing content? I don't have access to the file at the moment (we're away in Maine). I'm wondering if that page ended up blank for some reason. Take Care, Jodi from The Clutter-Free Classroom {www.CFClassroom.com}

Your use of black in your design is very striking, but don't'they use a lot of black ink? I really like your organizational ideas!
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  July 24, 2013Clutter-Free Classroom answered:
Thanks for your purchase! I do have some information on my blog, but will try to add a supplemental packet with the info outlined. The short answer is that I refer to the groups by colors. I write the students names on post-its and stick them on the color at the bottom of the chart so they know which group they are in. They then use that to guide them through the rotations by following the "path" of their color. For example, if it is the first rotation and they are part of the green group they go to the station that is green on the rotation board. Hope that helps a bit. :) Jodi from The Clutter-Free Classroom {www.CFClassroom.com}
