When students go back to school, we'll start to teach them basic classroom expectations and methods of communication.
Students who blurt are trying to communicate with us, but it can be distracting to the class. All students can learn to use hand signals
instead of blurting out or tugging on the teacher's sleeve when their basic needs are not being met. This amazing classroom management technique can be used with any age level.

In this set are ten
different hand signals that students can give to the teacher to efficiently communicate their needs. These hand signals are based on American Sign Language, but are easily learned by both hearing and non-hearing students:
"a" hand for "I have an answer"
"c" hand for "I have a comment or connection"
"y" hand for "Same as me!" or "I think the same thing"
"silent cheer" instead of yelling out, screaming, or celebrating loudly
"t" for "I need to use the restroom/toilet/bathroom"
"w" for "I need a drink of water"
The following signals can be used in any number of ways:
