Hey Friends! This past summer I attended the Teachers Pay Teachers conference and met some amazing teachers along with vendors. There is this giant room that is basically a candy store for teachers! While I was walking around, I came across sitspots.
Sitspots are basically di-cut velcro but perfectly made in any color that meets the eye.
Sitspots are meant to place around the room on carpet material.
They stick to the carpet.
The product is so durable, you can even vacuum over it!
How I use them in my room:
In the beginning, I used the spots as a means for where the kids are to sit during carpet time:
Now, I use them in a different way.
I allow my kids to work on the floor when they would like. My kids are also on the floor during center activities. Even though I give my kids a designated section to sit, they always manage to cluster together. We as teachers know, when the cluster gets TOO big their willingness to stay on task falters.
I blocked off sections in the room with sitspots!
I tell the kids that 2 kids per section can sit in that area.
This has worked wonders with controlling center areas AND read to self areas.
It also gives my floor a pop of color, which is OF COURSE a plus 🙂
