The Summer of Mustaches

Mustaches have (oddly) had a reoccurring appearance in my life this summer.  First, there was the EduBros Mustache party at ISTE '12.  Then, this article in the Seattle Weekly coining the term "Ironic Mustache Syndrome."  And, just when I thought I was done with them, a friend recently told me about mustache-themed classroom decor.  All of this resulted in a running joke between my husband and I, which I have now turned into a classroom/PD "parking lot" sign.


My plan is to put it on 11 x 17, laminate, and hang in my classroom.  Students will use sticky notes to write questions while I'm busy working with other students (mainly during small groups/conferring).  I've found that having this space allows students who are working independently to come to me while cutting down on interruptions at the same time. Win-win!

I put the image in a Google Doc just in case you want to use it, too.  Snag it here.
