Back to School Tips

my favorite desk arrangement, no one's back is to the board, there are easy paths for movement, and kids who need reduced distractions can sit in the front

Classroom layout has such a big impact on the students' experiences and learning in the classroom. Here are some the things I took into consideration when planning my classroom set up, along with the different arrangements and their pros and cons.

I love the desk arrangement in this classroom. Open group concept. Student desks are in groups, but all face the smart/white/chalk board.

If I had seen this when I was a new teacher, it would have made a HUGE difference in the way my classroom functioned. It would eliminate so much student off-task time getting a new pencil, getting notebooks, markers, etc. Store manipulatives in the drawers. You could even put a little trash container on top. Brilliant idea. It doesn't even take up a lot of floor space.

This is my FAVORITE way to arrange my desks! I just put my chair in the L of each group for an instant small group, push the four middle ones out for an quick square/round shape...two desks from each group get folded in and I have instant group. SO VERSATILE!!!
