I begin the year

Clip to ScrapBook #2

in groups of 4 or 5 students together, facing each other to build community and cooperation. I keep this arrangement but change locations of students as needed for the first half or so of the year. Later on, I've done the U shape or 2 long rows of students or even students in pairs as I feel are needed. I do this later on as they are beginning to be ready to learn at their desks, where as in the first part of the year I do the majority of my teaching with the students on the carpet in front of me.
