Everything Has a Place, Making Space

Help me give my students a safe place to put their learning tools.

My Students

My thumb presses the wireless doorbell, signaling to my students it is time to begin the assigned task. All at once they stand up and disperse to all corners of the classroom. Gathering scratch paper, pencils and coloring tools, possibly technology, and find a place to work.

Once settled, they independently dive into the task.

Conversation ensues as students hold each other accountable not only for the answers but for the "how" and "why" that let them let them there.

My Project

Everything about my classroom setup is designed for student learning. Currently all of my students' desks face the wall. As strange as this may sound, it has a purpose. All learning is done on the rug so no heads are turned away from the important information. The wall has become another workspace for my students to use.

Flexible group seating is my ultimate goal.

When it is time to work, a few of my students use their desks but the majority take to the floor. The floor is a larger work space for them. Majority of my class work is done with a partner or in small groups. I currently only have one large table for students to use. I keep the cardboard backing of my empty anchor chart papers to be used as a hard surface when they work on the floor. My ultimate goal is to get rid of all student desks and get fold up tables that they can move around the classroom. As well as a few cozy seating areas.

But before I can move to stage 2, I need a space for students to put their composition note books, folders, and supplies. The cubbies would allow just that, a place for my students' school tools. This is all to a means of providing a more efficient learning space for my students.
