I have had tables in my classroom for the past two years. They are great for groupwork. I'm discovering some major issues with them though. I feel like I can't be as flexible with how I arrange the tables. Also, I have individual boxes for the kids' supplies and I'd like to have individual book boxes/bags for next year when we get more leveled readers. I figure that if you had desks for the kids, they could keep all of their supplies inside the desks. Do any of you have desks in your room? If you do, what are the pros and cons of using the desks versus tables. Also, if you have tables, are you facing any major challenges with seating arrangement and supply organiztion? I'm thinking about this early so that over the summer I can give ample time to notify the office if I need to exchange the tables for desks.
