I'm looking for advice and tips on using tables for my second graders. I know some people love the group aspect and I agree with that. But my teaching style considered, I'm a desk person. I like to speak from the front of the room. I like my students to be able to look directly at... whatever without twisting about. I even like to separate desks when needed. However, tables are what we have, largely due to the smaller size of my classroom. Those of you who have tables and love them, how do you arrange them and the class? How do you manage students?
