I created this because I was having trouble managing my students during independent and small group conferences. I began using this sign during conferences and my students knew when it was an appropriate time to ask for help and when was not. I laminated all 3 items and put velcro on the backs of the red and green circles to switch them on and off of the anchor sign. I put this right behind my kidney table on the white board for all to see, however you can put it in any visible location nearby. Good luck!
