I started using these hand signals a few years ago and they have been a wonderful way to keep the classroom running smoothly with little vocal distraction.
This product contains 16 posters to help promote silent communication using hand signals.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
Note from Squirrel:
I stopped in Kat’s classroom at the end of last year and was able to witness the hand signals in action. WOWZA! It totally blew me away. It was the most well behaved and calm elementary classroom I have ever seen. Do this with your class and you will not be disappointed!
P.S. The kids got a huge kick out of it when I looked at Kat and raised one finger. (You need to get the artwork to find out why. hehe)
