Schedule Signs and Alphabet Lines…

Schedule Signs and Alphabet Lines…

July 9, 2012
Hey everyone!! I have been finalizing the last of the signs and labels for my classroom because, well, I’m going in to school this week! Thanks for all of your advice–I really enjoyed reading what everyone would do in the same situation! I decided IF I could manage to get the whole room set up, then I could really relax and enjoy the rest of the summer and plan away at home.
So. One of the last big sign-making-things I needed to work on were my new schedule cards, to match my color scheme. I am going with the Bright & Clear Schedule Signs (shown above) since my bulletin boards are black. But I also made some as Flipped Signs (because those are my secret favorite!)…
There are 27 different signs in these Schedule packets…I took all of your suggestions by email and messages (thank you!!) to make as much variety as possible.
I also added in the free Special Signs shared previously, so everything is together in one bundle (no extra cost, just to make things convenient)…with some adjustments like “P.E.” and “Gym”, your choice when printing.
The signs measure 6″ in diameter and are $2.50 in my TpT Store. If interested, please click on the green link just above.
I also made some Flipped Signs for the Alphabet Line. There’s Zaner-Bloser Cursive…
Zaner-Bloser Manuscript…
  And D’Nealian Manuscript…
These are also listed in my TpT Store.
I never post this many things at once to my shop, so I thought I would try something a bit different this time. I would love to give away a set of any one of the 5 different items shown above…
…to the first 10 readers to comment below! If interested, all you have to do is leave a comment with:

1. Your email name (so I can send it along to you).
2. Which one of the items (featured above) you would like.
Thank you for reading and I hope you are all having a relaxing evening! I look forward to getting into school soon and sharing some photos on here (cross your fingers the hallways are waxed so I can get to my room!!!!).

    Ohmyword, Kristen! You are too wonderful! I am going to be in trouble when I go back to school because I have WAY too much stuff to print on our color printer! I never thought I'd call schedule signs beautiful, but yours totally are! Only problem is… I love the bright and clear AND the flipped ones… hmm big decision to make! Can't wait to see photos of your newly decorated classroom!!

    Thanks for sharing!

    Would you be able to make your adorable alphabet line in d'nealian cursive. I am switching to third grade where I teach cursive and the d'nealian cursive alphabet lines are like impossible to find. Plus yours are SO CUTE! Thank you for considering this.

  • Mrs. M July 9, 2012 at 9:44 am

    You are just simply amazing. Love your stuff!!!

    I missed the top 10, but just wanted to say that these are beautiful!! I love all of them, but I think I'll be headed to your store to get the bright and clear! I have a black and white theme with a splash of color going on this year so the bright and clear will definitely add that splash of color!

    I absolutely love these! I will definitely get them. I'm wondering if you could perhaps make a French one for us Canadians? My OCD would hate me if I didn't have one 😀

  • Erin July 11, 2012 at 7:19 am

    Wow – I am in love with your website! I just found it tonight, and I've been blog stalking you for almost 3 hours now! Amazing! I am considering purchasing your flipped stuff – ALL OF IT! :))) Question, though – do you take requests for additional signage? You know how it goes, if you change one sign in the room, you want to change all of them! I did watch your tutorial on how to make printables in powerpoint, so I guess I could give it a go myself if you are unavailable, but I thought I would ask you first! LOL The additional signs I am interested in are: 1 – a daily 5 schedule circle; 2 – a sign for my library books rolling cart; 3 – a sign for my Friday Folders basket, and 4 – a sign for objectives (have to be posted in my room). The last 3 I would like in that frame with the curved corners and pointy middles. Glad to pay for this service, of course! 🙂

    I'm wayyyyyy late, as well, but I have purchases waiting in my cart from your Teacher's Notebook store! LOVE LOVE LOVE all of these signs!!! Can't wait to print them out and hang them in my room!

  • Marie August 1, 2012 at 3:14 am

    Bought the Bright and Clear Schedule Signs and love them! I know you said you weren't taking requests, but if and when you do, I was wondering if you could make the following? I would definitely pay for them 🙂 French, Assembly, Math Centers, Literacy Centers, Guided Reading, Shared Reading, Special. Thanks for reading this 🙂

  • Cathy Irwin August 10, 2012 at 2:08 am

    I love the schedule signs. I need to make them bigger to cover a bad paint job in my room. Would you be silling to tell me what graphics sets you purchased to make them?

    Thanks,

    Hello! I cannot tell you how awesome you are but you have to already know!! I need your help. We have a new specials called Humanities. Can I pay you to make one for me?!??!?!?!?

  • Anonymous August 16, 2012 at 2:35 am

    Hi. I really like your signs. Is it possible to make one for SEL (social emotional learning)? Also, is there a way to make them smaller? I downloaded the black and white ones that say crayons, sharpened pencils, etc. and I think that is a perfect size.

    Thanks,
    Katie

    Hello!
    You are amazing! I am in desperate need of more schedule signs and also wanted days of the week to match. Of course at your cost. Please let me know! My email: reymurrell@aaps.k12.mi.us. Thank you!

    • Kristen August 21, 2012 at 2:52 pm

      Hi and thanks so much! I'm sorry but I won't be able to take customized orders at this time, due to getting ready for my new school year. I'm very sorry, in an ideal world I would do this in a heartbeat!!

    • The beginning of ALLLL the due dates!! Our spring break is starting this weekend and I know I’m going to come back to a whirlwind of permission slips, forms, and project papers to keep up with!So I’ll be using these magnets to keep all of our due dates posted (and to save myself from the endless questions of when things are due!). If you’d like to see more about the magnets, please see the link in my profile (http://bit.ly/duedatemagnets)Are your due dates starting to intensify yet?#somuchtodo #classroomorganization #classroommanagement #iteachfourth #iteach4th #iteach456 #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram
    • My heart could just burst with happiness today. We’ve worked so hard as a community of readers this year to read as much as possible, in all the extra minutes we can find in our day.Today was our fourth grade Water Fair. The students had to present their projects in front of judges and wait patiently for the semifinals and then results...for several hours.It was a long morning for them.But I watched as so many happily pulled out their current reads while they waited, thrilled for all of the bonus reading time. ❤️❤️❤️ #fullheart #communityofreaders #readersgonnaread #iteachfourth #iteach4th #iteach456 #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram
    • Giveaway Closed...congrats @ccbahr!I just listed a new resource that has really made a difference in our class.I’m sure I’m not alone in this...our list of due dates is HUGE right now!! So I’ve been keeping track of all our forms and assignments with these little magnets. They have been SO helpful for my students...and me, honestly (I can lose track of things so easily these days!). Would you like to win a set for your class? You can earn two entries by doing the following:1. Comment with an emoji that shows your feelings about due dates right now.2. Comment again and tag a friend for a second entry.I’ll announce the winning name later this evening! The link to this resource is in my profile if you’d like to see more about it (http://bit.ly/duedatemagnets)#classroomorganization #classroommanagement #iteachfourth #iteach4th #iteach456 #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram
    • Magnet love!! 🧲❤️ I’ve been using these due date magnets to help organize our important papers and keep those deadlines posted for my students and (let’s be honest) me as well!Because this is the time of the year when so much is going on, so much is due...it becomes very easy for a teacher to get overwhelmed with projects, permission slips, order forms, and more!So now I post our papers, write the due date with a vis-a-vis marker and there it is...an easy-to-see visual reminder that keeps my class and I on track.I’ll share more from this board soon...we have some other resources that are keeping my fourth grade class a little more organized during this busy season!How do you like to keep track of due dates in your class?#classroomorganization #classroommanagement #iteachfourth #iteach4th #iteach456 #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram
    • My mind has been a jumble of thoughts this Sunday night, so I'm turning to google slides to help plan things out.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀This week, for example, we need to work on a couple of our routines that have become less...routine. 😬⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀This slide will give us a chance to have a chat and share strategies on keeping a clean workspace. Plus, it has visuals of how our tables should look, which is always a huge help!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Have you tried this with your class before? I think it will be a great reminder for my students this week!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀#classroommanagement #classroomorganization #iteachfourth #iteach456 #iteach4th #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram
    • I may have experienced a momentary feeling of dread when I saw Monday’s date as I left yesterday. 😂⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀But...I absolutely ADORE these magnetic numbers. I learned about this awesome time-saver from @twoteachersinfifth (Brooke and Leah always have the best ideas!!).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀And seriously...this is the first time in my seventeen years of teaching I haven’t routinely forgotten to put the date on the board. It’s a student job to keep it updated...but even if my fourth graders occasionally forget, it just takes a moment for me to do.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀I keep the numbers in a little photo storage box by the front whiteboard. The magnetic numbers are by Teacher Created and can be found on Amazon. (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00ZVQUS0K/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_i0-NCb0HNXCA8)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀I love how easy these numbers are to see from anywhere in our room...and of course the time they save!!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀#teachertimesaver #classroommanagement #classroomorganization #iteachfourth #iteach4th #iteach456 #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram
