Classroom Management Sit Spots


How would you like to win an amazing classroom management product, created by a teacher FOR teachers? Joyce Buehler has created an amazing product called "Sit Spots" and you could win them!! The best part is, If you win and IF you are going to Vegas, you could pick them out in person at the vendor booth. If you are not going to Vegas, you can pick them out online and Joyce will send them to you. I call that a win-win.

Here are some pictures of them in my classroom. Click on the word "Sit Spots" above to be taken to their website to learn even more ways to use them than I currently use them for.



Sit Spots do not stick well to the cute, colored, soft plied classroom rugs. Luckily, you can order a sample from them to see if the product will work well on your carpet. I do like to use them on the carpet where they won't stick so that the students can easily move them around to practice patterning and sorting. 

The Sit Spots stick SUPER well to our regular carpet and made a drab area look really bright and fun. The colors really POP and people often compliment me on these simple velcro color spots. Sometimes, I like to teach with the students up close to the board. Typically, I had them sit in this spot near the board and they would fight over who would sit the closest to the teacher. Another problem we USED to have was that they would take a favorite spot or sit too close to another student. When I introduced this product to the classroom, students chose their own color and placed it where I assigned them to sit. They have velcro on the bottom, so they can be placed AND MOVED as needed. These stick very well to the carpet and are easily vacuumed over.


Here, my students stand at their spots. When I ask them to, they each sit on their own spot, territorial provocations disappeared immediately!


One more thing I really love about this product is how easy it is to clean. A simple wipe over with a wet rag can bring the product back to look like new!




Enough about my classroom. How can you win them for YOUR classroom? It's easy! You can enter this Rafflecopter. But hurry! The Rafflecopter opens late tonight and you only have two days until a winner is chosen!

Enjoy!

  1. I would use these in my first grade classroom to create seating on the carpet. Much more affordable then a big rug with squares or dots.

  2. I would use these in my kindergarten classroom to help students learn shapes and to help them find a circle spot for our morning meetings. I will also use them for large group work when we do interactive activities on the floor.

  5. I am shifting from Grade 3 to Kindergarten this upcoming year and am looking for some new classroom management tricks. With a double class in one room (47 students!), sit spots will be a great way to create some controlled chaos!

  6. I would use them to group students on the floor for collaboration activities. Students with the same/different shape or color would be in the same group.

  9. Besides the above ideas, they could also be used to dismiss students back to their seats, by color or shape. Small groups could be formed by color or shape also.

  10. My ABC carpet was destroyed last year and child had their own "forever spot" on the rug. These would be the best replacement for it!

  11. I would use them to replace my round alphabet carpet at my meeting place. I have special education students who need something to help them find a personal "spot."

  12. I teach fourth grade in a very small classroom. I would use sit spots to create places for them to meet in small group. Even though they are "big kids" they sometimes forget how to effectively meet with each other. I would put these out in a circle/oval space with plenty of room between each. A+MAZING IDEA!!!
