I use this seating chart to house all my necessary student info (grade, book #, calculator#, etc) so I can quickly check to make sure students have their assigned book and calculator, it is especially handy at the end of the year when I collect books and calculators. The chart is laid out like the seats in my classroom so I can quickly and quietly take attendance using the first row of boxes under each student's name while students are working on their Bell Ringers. I also record grades for Classwork and Homework in the second row of boxes under each student's name and corresponding to the day of the week quickly as I walk around the classroom. I print a new seating chart each week so at the end of the year, I have a complete record of attendance and grades for each class period. I can quickly create new seating charts by cutting and pasting each cell.
