Our New Look
With twenty-seven desks (not counting the teacher's desk, which takes up a LOT of room), we were running out of space in our classroom. I have always wanted to try tables in my classroom, so this was the perfect opportunity. They are mismatched, but very serviceable. It has definitely given us more space, and a much more comfortable, less rigid space to work in.
The interesting thing is the students' reaction to them. They were all quite opposed to the idea of tables, as they all liked to have their own space and their own little drawer. After only one week, they all prefer the tables to their desks.
The downside is that the noise level has definitely risen in the classroom. I don't usually mind this, but there are times when it is much more difficult to get everyone's attention...
