    I struggle with room arrangement every single year. My students' desks have slanted tops and have the opening for the books under their seats with the open side on the left. Because of that, the desks can't be put in tables.

    Anyone else have these yucko desks? Any ideas?

    See the post about seating - kids with their backs to the wall. My desks are one piece and the opening for the books is also on the left. This particular arrangement works for me. Maybe it will for you.

    What about a pinwheel design with 4 of them so the opening will be available to use.

    Or groups of two facing each other?

    Or have them keep books in lockers or somewhere else in the classroom if possible.

    Agree with mopar's idea - I've seen it done. Not as neat as four flat top desks pushed together but it will work.

    Can you ditch them and use tables instead?
