A Variety of Uses for Seating Charts
I laminate my seating charts and use them in a variety of ways. With my laminated charts, I can check daily attendance, record homework, monitor participation and document student behavior. I also use my seating chart as I distribute textbooks. I write the textbook number next to the student's name on my chart. I put a sticker next to each child's name, and as I do a check for covered books, I put the sticker on their book cover. This also lets me test myself on their names. I am amazed that I really do know all their names after only two days! Never underestimate the power of a sticker. My high school students go crazy over them!
