Instead of taking hours after school fiddling with microsoft word templates and font sizes, simply print these and hang them around your classroom!
These signs were developed for use with newly arrived ESL students in high school, though they could probably be useful from grades 2 and up. Large, clear print is often matched with a picture, so students can see what you want them to do when you give directions like "Get into pairs" or "Clear your desk."
28 different signs are included, so you can print the ones you think will be most useful for your students. Post in the classroom and, when giving directions, point to the pictorial sign.
