Student Management

Provide Variety

Surprise children everyday with new seating arrangements and activities. In order to do this easily, have them pick an object from a container left near the room entrance and find the table with the corresponding object. For example: have a container filled with pattern blocks; as students come in the room, they will pick our a piece and go to the table that has the matching piece. Another example: have a stack of cards ready with math problems similar to what they have been doing in class; in order to find their seat, they have to solve the problem and locate the corresponding answer around the room.
