    U seating

    Hi! I've been teaching for 7 years in the 4th grade and I like to put the desks in a U shape. I've tried grouping desks my first year but it seems messy (small room) and of course the chatter was non stop. I even did the group reward thing but that didn't work. With the U they don't have to turn around, you can see everyone, and I have the Student of the Week sit in the middle with a friend of their choice. The kids seem to like this because 5th grade teachers have told me that the students from my class suggest to them to put the seats in a U.

    But do what feels right for you, I was on maternity leave this past year and I heard they wanted the kids in group. Not happening!!!
