I love the look of this, but just a note of caution...my experience is that velcro doesn't stand the test of time. I would suggest a clothespin. :) Jodi from The Clutter-Free Classroom www.CFClassroom.com
This would be great for transitioning students from desk work to circle time. Students will learn what is expected of them in order to start the lesson. Very cool idea and makes it easy for teachers and students to be on the same page.
