I found out that my department is getting moved from our hallway to the portables. The portable classrooms are much smaller than the regular classrooms. My rosters next year will be 45-55 per class, which is roughly the same number that I had this past year. In my regular-sized classroom, 51 kids was a very, very tight fit. I don't know how I'm going to fit that many (and them some!) into a smaller room. One option that crossed my mind is to get rid of student desks and replace them with floor pillows or bean bag chairs. Maybe I could have a stack of clipboards for students to use during class, too. Do you think that would work? Would it be some sort of code/law violation to not have desks for students? Do you have any better suggestions?
