Do you sit on the floor with the kids?
I teach second grade and I'm starting RC this year. For Morning Meeting, do you sit on the carpet with the kids or do you sit on a chair/stool of some sort? I'm thinking the floor isn't going to be the most comfortable for me ... I'm no spring chicken!;)

I teach second and I usually sit on the floor, but not always. I do find it's getting harder and harder to get up - lots of oys. I think sitting in a chair is perfectly fine. I even know kinder teacher's who sit in chairs. Just include the chair in the circle. Sometimes I sit in a student chair rather than a teacher chair.

I also sit in a student chair. It can be very difficult to sit Criss Cross Applesauce . . .guess I need to do some yoga. :-)

I prefer to sit on the floor...
but two years ago I had a "runner" and needed to keep a better eye on the door, so I sat on a chair! :)

I have been sitting on the floor though I think I'm gonna need some yoga if I want to keep doing it.
