Love this one! The design idea credit totally goes to my husband. Without his help this poster would just be the 'no Can't' sign in the center.
I finished two more posters in the last 2 days ANNNDDD I was able to get into my room today finally! I have a new arrangement for my tables that didn't quite fit as good as I was hoping.
Last year's arrangement was 10 tables pushed together to make five big ones so I decided to break it up a bit and have 3 rows of 3 tables for 9 total. Unfortunately it didn't fit! One of the tables is practically touching my drying rack so that's a no go. My solution (not sure if I like it yet) is to push the three center tables together creating one large one and having the outside rows stay the same.
This would leave me with 6 square tables on the sides of the room (seats 4 students) and one very long one right down the middle (seats 6-8 students). Part of me thinks this will be great. I love the idea of the long table for murals, group projects, large demonstrations, etc and I also like having the small tables for a more intimate working experience.
I'm also hoping that it will offer two different seating environments for different student needs. Some students work fine in larger groups while others do better working with just one or two other students.

What do you think of an arrangement like this? Has anyone had experience setting up different types of seating areas in their classroom? What were your success or un-success with it?
