Stack Formation Seating

Stack formation seating arrangement is an option you may want to explore for your classroom. There are dozens of different classroom arrangements. Don’t get overwhelmed with all the options. You must consider the size of your classroom space when planning for seating arrangements. Once you consider your space, you will want to decide if you need extra space for a reading area or a breakout session area. If you are comfortable utilizing your entire classroom you will need to ask yourself what type of learning will happen most often. If you have a collaborative classroom that does a lot of group work you will want to factor that in. 


In a stack formation arrangement, students sit very close to one another. There are some pros to this. They can interact easily. Group work can happen without having to rearrange desks and/ or chairs. A lecture-style classroom will likely be arranged quite differently than one with a collaborative focus.    



Stack formation is an arrangement where learners sit close together. Students can easily complete group work. This setup creates a cohesive group feeling within the classroom environment. This setup is useful when giving classroom demonstrations. You can easily utilize brainstorming sessions in this arrangement. If you use a lot of small visual aids, this could be a helpful configuration.



Students sitting so close to one another can sometimes lead to disruptive behavior. Students may not be comfortable sitting so close to other classmates. Sometimes having students close together can cause disciplinary problems in the classroom. 


When you are working to create an optimum learning environment, stack formation is certainly one of the seating arrangements you can consider. Have a happy and healthy school year.
