Rows or Clusters? Desk arrangements make such a difference in how the classroom operates. Personally, I dislike the individual arrangements. I would much rather prefer clusters that allow collaboration to occur more often.

I love the desk arrangement in this classroom. Open group concept. Student desks are in groups, but all face the smart/white/chalk board.

my favorite desk arrangement, no one's back is to the board, there are easy paths for movement, and kids who need reduced distractions can sit in the front

This is my FAVORITE way to arrange my desks! I just put my chair in the L of each group for an instant small group, push the four middle ones out for an quick square/round shape...two desks from each group get folded in and I have instant group. SO VERSATILE!!!

I'm a bit early on my classroom set up this year due to spinal surgery in the morning.  Since it will be six weeks before I'm ready to work...
