What is your advice about? Seating plans
- Have a seating plan.
- Line kids up at the back of the room when they first come in to your classroom, then tell them where to sit one by one. It’s the easiest way to get them in and seated.
- Don’t allow children to dictate the seating plan. Challenge grumbles and complaints.
- Have a paper copy on your desk when teaching and annotate with comments on homework, behaviour etc. Really helpful for keeping track.
- Change the seating plan often. Once a half-term works well.
