After years of trying different methods of helping organize 30 kindergarteners for circle time, I finally came up with something that I think will work. We are no longer allowed to tape or adhere anything to the floors, so the cleaning staff can properly clean the floors at night. And, so many kinders pick at the tape off the floor we used previously, I needed something that could not be picked off...so here it is.
Basically, it's a 10x12' white tarp. Divided into 30 spots. Hoping it will work for me, but figured I'd put it up online for anyone else to try.
I've also updated this file to include:
- smartnotebook seating plan file for projection purposes
- coordinating nametags
- printed version of seating plan for your daybook
Good luck with your new year everyone!
p.s. I have been using this for the first week, and learned a tip ... after you have the shapes traced onto the tarp, (if you're using a white/transparent one) ... FLIP IT OVER ... then have kids sit on it. My shapes started to smear, but after I flipped it over, they could still see their shapes, and the shapes didn't smear off anymore.
