Do you use a “Where are we?” board to let anyone know where the class is when you are not in the room? It is a helpful tool for those students that come in a little late. They just look at the board and meet you where you are. It is also helpful when another teacher is looking for a student or teacher. There are many forms of the “Where are we?” boards that are floating around the internet and pinterest. I have used several forms myself until I saw a sweet colleague's “Where are we?” board. I knew I had to have one like it, so, I made one with my own little twist and I love the way it turned out!
You can make one too. Here is how:
Gather your supplies. You will need a magnetic board, ribbon, packing tape, scissors, hot-glue materials, and a print out of this freebie.
Cut out the printed pieces and tape them on the magnet board with packing tape. Then cut and hot glue the ribbon to the magnet board.
Attach the top label with packing tape and a magnetic tape strip to the back of the HERE piece. Add a piece of ribbon to the back of the board to create a hanging look.
To use, place the board outside your classroom door. Have a student change the board every time you have a change of location. This makes a great class job that can be rotated student to student throughout the year.

Have a great time making your board,
