Having a few chatty boys in my class has gotten me thinking about a layout that I would like in my classroom. Ideally... I would like a large room with lots of natural light, tables for group work, and several library-style study carrels for quiet work spaces. Some of my kids work well in groups, and some of my kids have a hard time focusing if there's anything going on around them. I'd also like a carpet area or comfortable seating area for whole-group lessons, as well as a kidney table to meet with kids in small groups. If we're getting fancy... then I'd like alternative seating as well, such as couches and exercise bikes, for a variety of options. So, what about you all?
