CBM1-Classroom Organization for Productivity

Objective:  Learners will create a classroom floor plan and seating chart for their content and grade level that maximizes learning and time on task, minimizes distractions and accounts for disabilities/behaviors/attributes of sample students. 

Now that we have learned how to develop engaging lessons, congruent to our objectives and assessment, it’s time to talk about classroom management.  As a teacher, classroom and behavior management will be your biggest challenge.  If you cannot set up and facilitate a well-managed classroom, it will be hard for you to be successful as a teacher.

What you do before students step foot in your classroom plays a big part in determining your success.  One of the things you want to consider is the physical layout of your classroom.  You want to organize your space to maximize student on-task behavior and minimize off-task behavior.  This includes all the areas that students use regularly, as well as your own desk space. 

Pages 31-63 in your text provide suggestions about how to arrange your desk and supplies.  They also include time management guidance for documents, grading, and storage.

Pages 125-135 in your text discuss specific ideas for planning your room, seating arrangements, and traffic flow.

Read these pages and view the following video to help you create a master plan to address all the responsibilities you will have as a teacher.

Think about your ideal classroom:

1. How will you arrange your desks for maximum student learning? 

2. What will you put on your walls?

3. How will you make your room look inviting and welcoming?

4. What type of student centers will you set up in your room to maximize instruction time and encourage students to be self-sufficient?

5. What items will students need to collect/store/use, and how can you arrange the room to make the flow easy and efficient?

Youtube and Pinterest are great resources for teachers to find creative ways to organize and establish a welcoming classroom.  


Create your ideal classroom arrangement 
and seating chart.  You may use any element of technology to create your payout;  Word, Powerpoint, or submit a hand drawn layout.  

Assume that you will have 25 students in a classroom. On the diagram you just created, think about (and label) where you would place the following students:

· 2 students are tall – label their desks with a T

· 1 student is very quiet – label their desk with a Q

· 2 students are well behaved with no behavior problems – label with a checkmark

· 1 student sleeps in class – label with an S

· 1 student in a wheelchair – W

When you are satisfied with your plan, using the criteria above, save it and upload it to your Canvas Tool Box Folder. You will post this document to your final website project at the end of training. 


Five Seating-Chart Apps for Classroom Organization

Organizing the classroom can be overwhelming, and paper seating charts can get lost under piles of paperwork and handouts. Luckily, several apps let teachers manage their seating charts, attendance, grades, and more–all in one place. Here are our picks for apps teachers can use to organize their classrooms:

All Here ($.99):  Get a seating chart, attendance tracker, reminder alarms, and more. By clicking on an absent student, the teacher can even email the parents the missed schoolwork. 
All Here also offers a memory game to help teachers easily remember their students during the first week of school. 

Seat Charter ($2.99):  Users can add student photos and graphics to serve as chairs, tables, etc. The app also offers a shuffle feature to randomize a group of people, export options to share charts, and more. 

Teacher Kit (Free):  Here’s a teacher personal organizer that helps organize classes and students. Educators can take attendance and track student grades and behavior. 

Be Seated (Free):  Virtual desks let users create the classroom roster with names, photos, and seating assignments. The app also enables randomly assigned seating. Educators also can track attendance and more. 

Smart Seat ($4.99):  Create seating charts using a grid, record and export attendance, choose random students for class participation, make student notes, and store student photos. Easily export seating charts as PDFs to give to substitutes. Users can also export student records to e-mail.
