It’s Monday again, and time to link up with 4th Grade Frolics for Monday Made It.
The first Monday Made It is a set of Classroom Sign Language Posters. I have been using hand signals in my classroom for the past 3 years, and I don’t know how I survived without them. I love how my students and I are able to communicate basic needs and wants without using our voices. The signals that I use are inspired by New Management’s posters. I have tweaked them to be based on the American Sign Language alphabet. The first year I used hand signals, I only used 4.
Now my students and I use 8 signals on a daily basis.
If you like my new Facebook page, you can get all 8 posters for free. I will be adding a new freebie to my page each Monday, so stay tuned.
My second Monday Made It, is my teacher binder.I didn't really create much for this one because I purchased Tiffany's chevron teacher binder from The Learning Effect. Once I printed everything out, I put everything into a binder with dividers.
I love how Tiffany thought of everything when putting her binder files together. The monthly calendar layout is perfect for writing down important dates and information crucial for that month.
I am very excited to use the meeting notes format because I always seem to misplace my notes and never have a safe place to keep them.
I did not print out the daily lesson plans our monthly curriculum map since they are editable, and I have not met with my new team yet.
