I do feel lucky to have a pretty good size classroom. However, I feel your pain when it comes to conferring with so many students. Like you said, the difference betweeen 20 and 27 is huge in terms of holding individual reading and writing conferences. I feel like I can hardly meet the needs of all of my readers and writers! I know that small group strategy lessons and regular monitoring of the students' Reader's Notebook will be so important this year so that I can stay on top of their progress!
