We Now have less desks than students...

So What?

  • In Room 7, we continue to develop the learning spaces in our classroom. 
We are officially down to 18 desks for 31 students. The desks seem to be forming the learning caves - places for individuals to work when they are wanting quiet spaces.... I purchased 2 round tables that the children enjoy as collaborative spaces. I notice the round table with 6 yellow stools is far more popular the the table with regular classroom chairs.  Two boys in our class are really enjoyng the leather footstools at a low table and the bean bag with clip boards nearby is becoming a respected "quiet " zone. We are unpacking and exploring further with the children where they think they learn/work best when learning in different curriculum areas and different types of tasks.
