Looking for a smooth way to start your classes this fall?
Enter your students' names into this color-coded seating chart in reverse order -- from the students' perspective. Project it on the first day of class and let students find their own seats. Watch your students enter the room quietly, find their seats quickly, and listen carefully for your next set of instructions as they have already learned that you are an efficient teacher who will use technology and who will not waste their time.
This activity has proven successful with students as young as Kindergarten. Older students appreciate the opportunity to find their own seats rather than wait for their name to be called.
The color-coding really helps substitute teachers. If you have student photos, you could even add those to the seating chart tiles. However, you can always change the colors to any scheme you want.
The flexibility of SMART Notebook means you can arrange the seats in any shape or order: traditional rows and columns, table groups, circle, arc rows, etc. This seating chart is appropriate for all classroom situations, schedules, and age levels.
