It's been about 10 weeks now that I've been with the tables. Make no mistake, I have not been the best at managing the misbehavior of my students (the topic of a different post, yet written). That said, it occurs to me that having my students sit at tables makes it very easy for my students to be social when they ought to be listening. If I was better at keeping their attention, the tables would be great. As is, the tables make my classroom environment rather not conducive to ordered, focused learning.
And that's what I have to say about that, at least for the time being.
