SitSpot Giveaway!!!!

Last week, at the Southern California Kindergarten Conference, I encountered an amazing new product....SitSpots.


 These little velcro goodies can stick to the carpet (and don't come off easily) to help organize and manage your classroom.  Take a look...




I think ideally, I would use the SpitSpots instead of a class carpet.  I would evenly space them on the carpet so the students would all have a spot for "carpet time."  Look and see some ways of using SpitSpots in an elementary classroom...


During center time, I have the students practice reading their essay or journal entries to the students in their group.  I normally have them sit in a circle, but still in 4th grade you have the squirmy ones that have a hard time sitting still.  Now with SitSpots, I made a little reading corner!  The author can sit in the chair, and the listeners can each sit on a SitSpot.  This keeps them all spaced and ready to be good listeners!


The students came up with the idea for using SpitSpots to help organize our centers.  I wrote a number on each SpitSpot, and the students take their center to the corresponding marker on the carpet!


This is a horrible picture, BUT you can see that I placed some Spit Spots randomly around the room.  I have the students work in collaborative groups several times a day, and they normally get super close to other groups.  But now, the students have to work near a SpitSpot.  This keeps all of the groups spaced evenly around the room.


This is for all of you meticulous teachers out there that HATE it when your table groups get off-centered.  I put a SitSpot where the center of each table group should be.  This keeps the desks organized and tidy!

  28. I am so in love with these spots I cannot stand myself! What a smart way to define space. My kids are constantly in each other's business (and space)... this could just be the magic ticket- especially at stations. Spring break: ANY where but Michigan.... we are on snow day #12.

    ReplyDelete

  41. I got these when I saw her in Vegas. I love them. My advice is to get something not pointy. I have stars (they maybe suns in the brochure). My points don't stay down as well after vacuuming. I've had mine on the floor since the beginning of the year. They are still in their spots, just the edges are starting to fray up a bit. I love them and had others order them and love them.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Perfect timing as I have to give back my borrowed carpet at the end of this year! This will actually fit all of my kids and the washable factor is irresistible!! angelashaw63@gmail.com.

    ReplyDelete

  43. My favorite spring break spot is wherever my family is...either hiking in the Sierras or relaxing on the couch. Even a day of snow boarding at Heavenly if we still have snow is great!

  66. My favorite place to lay in the sun and forget about the never-ending snow in Indiana is Treasure Island, FL. I have been going here for 15 years with my family.
