Great Ideas: Student Seating at Mass

Student Seating at Mass

To avoid students always choosing to sit next to their friends at our school’s weekly Mass, I ask the children to line up in a particular order. Examples might be alphabetically by middle name, numerically by birth month or day, or by the sum of their phone number digits. As the year progresses, I let them come up with their own suggestions of different ways to get in line.
