Don’t have the time to make a seating chart? We got you covered!
Seating Assignment Options
Need to change your seating arrangement but have no time between conferences, grading papers, and preparing lessons? Here at Farm Academy, we’ve found the top 3 places to go to get your seating chart done in under 5 minutes.
- Mega Seating Plan
I really enjoyed using this site because I’m a visual person and I liked that you could have pictures of your students in the seats. I also liked that I could use the smart sorter tool and sort my class by gender, name, or grade. Which is perfect for anyone that works with a mix of grades. The only issue is that to get the photos you have to pay a monthly subscription. Even with just the “bronze” or free features, I was able to use it to efficiently come up with a new seating assignment. Overall very user-friendly and fast system.
- Happy Class App
Are you someone that finds using your phone easier than your computer or maybe you’re in the middle of moving desks around? Then this app may be for you. Like the mega seating plan, it allows you to arrange your classroom desks in multiple formations and sorts your students. The only downside is to unlock all features there is a subscription fee of $15/year.
- PDF/Word/Excel Templates
Not technology savvy and don’t want to deal with another application or software program? As that old saying goes if it’s not broke, don’t fix it. Sometimes adding another software program or app just isn’t effective. This site has a lot of different templates that are PDF and Microsoft Office friendly. I like that there are many classroom arrangements to pick from and that it’s easy to change the number of seats when you open a document. Very user-friendly and 100% free. The only problem is that it takes a little more effort to fill in the seats.
