Cut down on unnecessary interruptions and have more focused class discussions by using these awesome hand signals with your students. These colorful signs take up little space and can be arranged in different ways in your classroom.

I started using hand signals in my classroom several years ago. I wish I had known to use them from my first year of teaching! Using them TRULY makes a difference in how efficient and organized my classroom is.
When students need something like a new pencil, drink, tissue, or bathroom break- they can simply raise a hand signal to let me know. When I see their hand I nod my head to acknowledge their request without having to interrupt my lesson!
I especially love the way hand signals have improved my small group discussions. Students no longer have to interrupt me and I always know where all of my students are and what they are doing.
Simply teach the signals on the first days of school and hang them in a place where students can easily see them. After constantly reminding students of the signals and reinforcing them as they use them for a few days, the kids have them DOWN. The rest of the year goes SO smoothly!
One thing I especially love about this set is that there is a set with extra visuals! This is PERFECT for kindergarten, the beginning of first grade, and classrooms with students with special needs.
