Talking Circles - Options for Physical Space

Many classrooms are limited in space, and it takes time to rearrange the room. To allow for frequent talking circles, do what works best for you and your classroom. Here are some examples of what works well. One teacher invited her students to come up with a plan themselves on how to create a circle without having to change the room too much - they came up with a great plan and of course felt proud of themselves for coming up with a solution together!
