You have a beautiful room, and I took many ideas to use in my 4th grade classroom.
I find moving around the room on a daily basis difficult. I have 32 students, 34 last year, and 38 the year before. I find that putting the desks in groups works better for flow. What do I do when I want to run groups? I use student's desks as a group, but then you have to wait for students to leave. I've tried having them sit at their own desk and give whole class directions and that has its problems. I do have a classroom library with pillows and that is a must group and they can sit, lay where ever there is room. That works! My desk is on my projector table. I also have 3 computers in my room. So getting everything to work is a challenge.
Do you have any ideas for how I can get a group in a part of my room I haven't thought of?
