#Made4Math - Door Sign


I'm so excited that #Made4Math is back for its third summer! If this is your first #Made4Math, it was started as a way to help keep me accountable for all of the to-do projects that I wanted to do over the summer. Hopefully, I'm not the only one that thinks... "oh, what a great idea! I'll do that this summer!" Then August comes, and none of those projects got done... :(

Anyway, here's my first project of the summer.. a door sign!


One of the things that really bothered me this year was the constant stream of visitors on test/quiz days. For some reason, every test/quiz day seemed like it was newspaper delivery day or a day of many office passes. The part that *really* bothered me was that the pass deliverers were rarely quiet. They would let my door bang shut or be loud as they opened the door or something that disturbed my students. Very frustrating! :(

Hopefully the sign will remind them to be QUIET...

Project #1 DONE! :)

In my experience working at museums, people don't read signs.

My unsolicited advice would be to print out signs for everyone in the school--make it a common practice (hopefully). The goal being that the presence of the sign would be a cue for students, who don't need to read the content to know what it means.
