Do you remember your second grade classroom? I remember it being a rather large room, but then I was quite small back then. There were music instruments in one corner of the room that we used to “make music” every week. There were books along one wall, and small tables in the middle of the room where students sat. Students were grouped at the tables such that there were six to eight at any one table. Projects were done together and work was shared giving encouragement or trouble. There were windows along the wall across from the entrance that looked out onto a tree lined street. The school was a Kindergarten through sixth grade in a middle class neighborhood.
