When your students leave their chairs, you can say "please sit down". "Have a seat" or "take a seat" are used for polite invitations, not instructions. For example, when you invite someone to your home, you might say "please have a seat".   With kids it is not a question of invitation, so "sit down" is appropriate.

I have never heard of "get your seat".

Hope that helps,

Take your seat if you want some to sit down. Get your seat I would tell my grandson when I want him to get his car seat and bring it to me.
