Teaching kiddos how to use flexible seating can seem overwhelming! There are so many choices, and no teacher wants a room full of chaos!
I created a class book called "Smart Spots" to teach all about choosing a flexible seating spots in the classroom. A Smart Spot is a place where children go to do their best work! The book teaches children how to use a Smart Spot using kid-friendly language and colorful pictures. It explains expectations for each seating choice.
This book is perfect to read at the beginning the year, after extended breaks, and on days with a substitute!
The book includes 18 different seating choices, including:
* *The following were added August 2019
butterfly chair or camp chair
The book can be printed for your classroom library or projected using PowerPoint. After reading the class book, kids can color their own book (one page foldable). There are also choices of printables and a Smart Spot contract for children to sign.
To help organize your classroom, there are 4x6 cards for each seating option. You can post the seating choices that are available for kids. For example, I remove floor and rockers from my choice board when we do art in the classroom.
