Signal Letters

I came across a picture of someone's classroom and noticed a stoplight cutout on the board. Above the stoplight it said, "signal letters." Next to the red was the letter e. Next to the yellow was the letter i. Next to the green was the letter y. I'm curious as to what this means. I tried to research it but couldn't find the answer. Does anyone know? It sounds interesting.

Maybe it's a behavior management

system. Instead of making the behavior good, warning, bad, they use the first letter of a sentence or word and the teacher just has to say that letter to let a child know to correct the behavior instead of putting their name or clip on the behavior chart.

Just a thought. Hope someone really knows the answer.

Open Court reading calls e,I,y signals when they signal another letter/sound. E at the end of a word signals the vowel to say it's name (long sound), e,I, and y next to a c or g are a signal for the soft sound of those letters. I've never seen it on a traffic light but I'm guessing this is what you saw.
