How is your room organized right now? Are your desks/tables in rows? Groups?

I can't teach with rows. We have centers in first grade so I need my desks arranged in groups. Also, it seems like first graders talk "louder" when they are in rows. I know they are going to talk and share ideas and if they are farther apart they just talk louder.

Groups of 4 or 5 in my 6th grade LA class. We do lots of sharing and collaborative work.

Mine now are in groups of 2s in rows. I really dislike rows...but my kids are super chatty in groups right now. Eventually we'll get back to groups.

Groups. I don't think it'd be feasible to do rows in K.
