Everywhere a sign
Blockin’ out the scenery
Breakin’ my mind
Do this, don’t do that
Can’t you read the sign?”
The magical and rebellious lyrics from The Five Man Electrical Band were echoing in my head as I scrolled through Twitter checking out the ingenious and clever school signs that my colleagues have been displaying in the recent TVDSB Sign wars. With the absence of school events, as a result of most students learning from home and current COVID safety protocols in place, school teams are using their literacy skills to create signs that not only catch the attention within their own school community but challenge neighbouring schools to participate.
The comments on social media have been both positive and comical as each post automatically leads to a response and ultimately an updated sign from the “tagged” school ~ a whole new meaning to the definition of being “tagged”.
And here we go again ~ just more way in which educators are constantly looking for those moments to bring some sunshine and laughter into our current situation.
As a brand new school who has yet to raise enough funds for our sign (we’re working on it) this is just one more reason for us to meet our goal. We want to play too!
Which school sign has made you giggle the most?
