I found a blog on arranging the classroom. It’s called, Classroom Setup: Arranging the Physical Space by Michelle Sullenberger. She shared information on how she arranged her room. She puts her students desk in groups to allow an ease in transitioning into small groups for collaborative learning. The extra desk/tables are placed around the edge of the room for her to use with guided instruction, partner work or quiet work. She stresses the importance of having desk arranged so that walking paths are clear, allowing a smooth flow through the classroom. She teaches her students how to move throughout the room on the first day of school. She establishes a routine, therefore decreasing confusion with her students. Thank you Michelle for sharing your blog.
