Classroom Organization Take 4 “Where Are We?”


As a special education resource teacher, I was constantly grabbing students for testing, small group, and etc. Sometimes, I would head into a class just to discover they were not there… The hunt begins… Well, I think it was easier finding a “cute” resolution to this problem via pinterest.

Have you seen this adorable sign by Sara Saucy of Smiling in Second Grade on Pinterest? Oh My!!!! Love it!!!

Isn’t it adorable??? Too Darn Cute for Words!!

As soon as I saw this, I knew I needed to utilize it in my new 2nd grade classroom. As a resource teacher, I was constantly looking for students to complete benchmark and progress monitoring assessments. I have even witnessed students who have arrived late to school and not know where their class is. (With this adorable sign…your problems will be solved!)

I think this sign is a terrific way to let everyone {students (who may arrive late) and teachers/staff members} know exactly where you are at.

I love how Sara used a small circle and velcro to move to each sign. I am going to attach my signs to a long board, attach some ribbon and use a clip style clothespin to “clip” where we are.

I am going to add a classroom job entitle “On the Go” Montior

The student who is the “On the Go” Monitor will be responsible for moving the clip prior to leaving the room.

I wasn’t sure which sign I liked so I made two versions (LOL)

To snag this sign in neon click the images below.

P.S. As soon as I get my sign finished, I will post a finished product picture.

  15. Hi Melissa, I love your blog and your ideas you share! I was wondering if you could add library & PE to your polka dot "where are we?" signs? As I was making mine I thought i had missed a page but saw you had it for the other color scheme. I understand if this is too much to ask. Thanks again for your time & willingness to share.

  16. Which font did you use for these adorable signs? I was wanting to create a sign for 'Here' so that something is always checked. Thanks!

  17. I am also in need of the Library sign. Do you have one you can send me. Or a way to edit this document so I can add my own words to the black polka dot borders?
