For the past few years, I have used this Sign Language inspired classroom management strategy with my students with great success. I have finally decided to update the graphics and provide it to you for free since I believe it is really that amazing!
Hang up these posters in the front of your room for students to see. As you are teaching and students raise their hand for a purpose, they must refer to the posters to hold up the correct sign.
For example, if they have an answer, they hold up the sign for the letter a. If they have a question, they hold up the sign for the letter q. This helps the teacher scan the room and call on students who have the answer or a question, instead of those who want to add a comment or use the bathroom.

I'm apologize, but I am unable to make any additions or modifications to this product.
