    Tables!

    I teach 5th also, and switched to tables about 5 years ago. I wouldn't go back to desks. I got rid of mine too! We do a lot of co-op learning, and moving to different tables ALL the time. So their seats change daily and hourly! It makes if more community oriented, cause they can't say, Hey that's my desk.... Infact, there are optional tables throughout the room that when we read silently or take tests, some kids just automatically move to a different table. No fighting, nothing. Some kids just prefer to be alone, others near someone. We use cloth pouches on the back of our chairs to stow our stuff, and there are bookshelves placed around the room to hold our books.
