Fifth Grade Language Arts, Hamilton Elementary
This year we have been trying alternate seating. The students get to choose where they sit every day. I draw sticks at the end of the day for their choices for the next day. This seems to be the fairest system. I have several more chairs and tables than nesessary so that I can move any friends that are having a difficult time. The students have loved the new arrangement. They have made new friends, worked harder, been creative, cleaned up the classroom at the end of the day willingly and shared their space and supplies. Great life skills and a very happy teacher!
