Love this desk arrangement with supply storage in the middle for kiddos to share! If the students have all needed materials at their desks, then they will not be all over the room during lessons looking for supplies.
Great example of an open group desk arrangement. Student desks are in groups, but all face the smart/white/chalk board. This arrangement facilities a great environment for establishing good student-student relationships.
Knowing about the positive experiences students have had sitting on exercise balls in class (but knowing my type A personality can't handle 26 balls rolling around the classroom), this idea created a way for the ball to be stationary, but the stude.
