Fifth Grade Math and Science, Hamilton Elementary
Last year we tried alternate seating. The students got to choose where they sat every day. I drew sticks at the end of the day for their choices for the next day. I had several more chairs and tables than nesessary so that I could move any friends that were 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!
