You may have seen the picture of my "4S Line" poster floating around Pinterest. I posted it here back in September of 2010 after moving in to my new classroom and suddenly realizing that a sign posted near my lineup area might remind students of the school-wide "4S" expectation- that lines be straight, silent, still, and smiling.
Last year I was contacted by someone at Frog Street Press looking for the origin of the 4S Line to recognize them as inspiration for a new product. I told her that I made the poster but that my principal got the idea from a conference several years ago. Frog Street added a 5th "S" to turn the list into a rhyming poem and printed it upon a handy vertically hanging chart. I said that I would love to see the product when finished and even though I can't take credit for the concept, they were nice enough to mail me the Classroom Management Ready Reminders pack that I've decided to give away on Adventures of an Art Teacher!
|Code for free shipping at Frog Street Press- FLSHREADY|
The set includes the 5S Style chart as well as Seat Signals and School is Through, What do you do? These are more geared toward classroom teachers but I think 2 of the 3 could be used in an Art room as well. To be entered in the give away, just comment here with your name and favorite color (just because I can) by Friday, August 9th. I will use a random number generator to select a winner on Saturday morning. Sorry, US addresses only (the package is rather long and I don't know how much shipping will be). Make sure that I can either find your email via your Blogger ID or that you check back to see if you're the winner so I can get your address. You don't have to follow my blog to win, but it would be nice of you if you find anything useful here. :)
