    How do you in the upper grades arrange your desks? I know in first I use groups of 4 but am wondering if that will be to much in 4th. I have thought about a U shape grouping or groups of 2...how are your desks set up?

    I have table desks and have them in groups of 4. (5th grade) To have the older kids in tables, I think you have to really have a grip on classroom management (lots of talking). We talk about personal space and the fact that your feet belong under your desk, not your neighbors. Next year's group is totally different than any we've ever had. I don't know that I will keep them in groups.
