Plastic Seating Charts
July 24, 2008
As a special area teacher, juggling more than five hundred kids in twenty three homerooms, I've found lots of shortcuts to manage grades. My favorite is using clear plastic notebook sleeves to hold seating charts. Notes can be written directly on the plastic with overhead markers and then washed off as needed. When I do performance assessments, I write the grades directly on the seating chart and transfer the grades to my grade book at a later date. I can also note health issues on my seating charts. These plastic charts are a big help for substitute teachers.
