Reflection: Student Grouping Biographies: Bio Cubes Group Activity - Section 3: Group Biography Share


We do a lot of group work and group activities in my classroom.  I have arranged the desks in my classroom into tables to help facilitate group activities more easily.  I have move the students around periodically.  However, I am very particular about where they sit.  I try to arrange the students so that those who need a little extra help are sitting by someone that can give them some help.  So the groups or tables in my room are very diverse.  This makes it easy to work group activities because that extra support is there for the kiddos that need it.  

I also use the tables for small reading groups each day.  In these groups however, the students are grouped based on their reading performance.  We move desks and each group meets at a particular table each day.  I use parent volunteers to help me run these groups.
