Thanks! I bet your 4th grade classroom looks great!
I was finding it difficult to move around the room as well, that is one reason I wanted to change the design a bit. You're right, putting desks in groups can be helpful. I would often pull up a stool to table groups when I was working with them. Getting everything to work is a challenge. I had to live in my space a few years before deciding what would work. I kept rearranging furniture and trying different options.
I would try different, non-traditional furniture options. Maybe even eliminate a few desks for a table?
Best of luck, and I hope you have a great year,
