Smartboard location
Hello. Just wondering where in your room the smart board is located. Do you have a carpet area for the kids to sit in front of it. I am debating switching my room around to give kids a large carpeted area to sit in front of it, rather than being at their desks. Thanks!

I switched
I used to have my carpet in the back of the room and the student desks facing the SmartBoard. Last year, I switched midyear so that the carpet is in front of the SmartBoard. The kids are able to stay focused better, and I really like having them up close. This also means that the board is separated slightly from the desks for a SmartBoard center (less of a distraction). The kids enjoy it because they are able to see it from their seats, but when I am teaching from it directly, they can move to the carpet and get out of their desks.

I just got one this summer. I did end up rearranging the room so that there is a carpeted area in front of the Mimio. Kids can also see it from their tables. I'm really looking forward to using it!

Thanks for the replies. I agree....I think it will help them focus better. Can't wait to switch and try it out!
