This document includes some of the most common hand gestures used in classrooms including:
I need to go to the bathroom
I need a kleenex
I need a pencil
I need to take a lap
I need a drink of water
I have a comment
I have a question
I have an answer
NOTE: THE DOCUMENT NOW INCLUDES TWO SEPARATE HAND GESTURES FOR "I HAVE AN ANSWER." BY USER REQUEST.
The hand signals are pencil-like drawings of a hand and have the word descriptors in vertical text next to the image. The document is to be posted in the classroom so that all students can know which hand signals to use throughout the year.
These hand signals are a great tool for classroom management and can easily be used by beginning and veteran teachers alike.
