North is Up? Chevron Directional Signs to the Rescue!

How many times do you ask your class which was is North and a little kiddo points to the ceiling?

No, North is not up to the sky :)
One piece of classroom decor that is always around are the directional signs: North, South, East & West. I place these on each of the corresponding walls and use them throughout the year.

Included in the packet are the cardinal and ordinal directions:

The other great uses for directional signs?
  • Back to School Room Scavenger Hunt- Where is the attendance sheet? On the West wall!
  • Voting- If you agree, go to the South wall. If you disagree, go to the North wall
  • Multiple Choice- each wall is an answer- GREAT way to check for understanding and get kids moving
  • Splitting up into groups or meeting areas
  • and more!
These match all of my chevron products, including the oh-so-cute Welcome Flag Banner with the lovely chevron background in red, blue, green, teal, orange, gray and purple. Plus, there is a blank background if you would rather print on colored cardstock.


Would you like these directional signs? They are listed now in my TpT Store :)

Hope you are all enjoying your summer!

      I found the Pin Me button here: http://www.coloradoweddingphotographer.co/pin-me-one-photographers-take-on-the-pinterest-legal-situation/. It's a fun twist on the original, isn't it :)

      Thanks again and best of luck on your DC project!

  6. I like your signs! I used them for inside recess as well. We call it N,E,S,W. 1 student would be "It". S/he would sit at his/her desk with eyes closed. The others would quietly and quickly find a wall. The student who was "It" would call out a direction. Anyone along that wall would sit down. The winner was the last one standing. When we were down to 4 students they would have to go to seperate directions.
