Teachers, here are FREE printable signs that tell others where to find your class. You will save others a lot of inconvenience and grief if you display these signs whenever your class leaves the room.
When your class leaves the room, others don’t always know where to find you. This can become a problem for a parent dropping off a lunch, a student who arrives late to school, or a messenger.
Some teachers make cute signs for their doors; mine are more functional. You can print them in color and have a bona fide cute sign. Or you can do what I did: print them in black and white—on colored paper. (I use green for Miss Green.) That will catch the eye and look pretty decent. Laminate each sheet of paper, cut out each sign, and there you go! My version like this lasted for three years.
At our school, we have windows on each door to the classroom. The windows are framed in metal, and magnets stick to this. We keep all the signs clipped together on the inside of our door. When we leave the classroom, it’s one student’s job to choose the correct sign and display it on the outside of our door. This is a coveted job, so the child does it well, lest he or she lose the privilege.
I have uploaded the signs in two formats. The pdf is ready to use. I also give you the PowerPoint, so you can make modifications to fit your situation. To use the file, just click. Once in the file, click again to enable editing. Then you can customize the signs to fit your needs.
