My use of these seating charts is how I stay organized, keep written records of assessments, and notate important information. I print them out on cardstock and put them on a metal ring so that together they provide a sturdy surface to write on. I also color code the seating charts by grade level.
Sample of a student:
This tells me the student is in special ed, has asthma and has been helper twice. I use an empty seating chart square to write in the date of an assessment and the description with a line to the corresponding square. Then I write in the grades for individual students as they are assessed and later transfer that to my school district’s online gradebook.
I print these charts out twice a year. Last year I had just printed them off in January, and the very next week I had a substitute who marked in sharpie their attendance in very big letters. Ugh!! Grrr. Speaking of substitutes, these seating charts help the substitutes out by giving them the information they are required to have to teach your classes. (Because of the information I put on them, I don’t let students get a good look at them.)
Now that I use this form, I spend so much less time making these charts than in the past. I can tab over to the next student instead of using the mouse to click on the next space. When you are creating seating charts with several hundred students, this is a huge time saver. Then your charts are clear and concise, and you are able to record grades in an organized manner.
