Anne...this is interesting. I just moved into my LONG,NARROW ROOM....(41x16)

Guess how I set it up? Horizontal rows (2) with kids facing front. There are
only students on oner side of the table. I left room between the 2 horiz. rows
for me to walk through. I moved my chalk board to their front.. facing them.
I put 6 foot and 8 foot tables together to make the long row..(less talking) I
will pass out supplies across the row. I havent tried this yet, of course.
I had originally set my last room up as a large "pod" with 2 tables together
on one long side to seat 10 ( 2 at each end and 3 on each side). There was too
much conversation and distraction with other kids facing them.
So, I opted for the vertical rows. Hope it will work!
