I am semi-planning my second year as would like to ensure more active
participation in my lessons. Do any of you have some strategies you care to
share or ideas? I have a new set of lap whiteboards and want to use them

One of my biggest roadblocks is that the children sit at round tables, so I
would have a few backs to me- not something I want! Any ideas on how to
handle this aside from getting new tables (eventually!) ? I have 4 people to
each table, 6 tables. I tried to move the chairs so they would all be facing
me, but if they need to write they run into problems with the table legs. If
I am using the computer the obviously have to turn to see it, but that is
short-lived. More active participation would ensure that they are looking at
