Pre-K classes are artfully arranged to facilitate learning through activity spaces and movement. Others would benefit from this too.

That's so interesting. I'm curious to know what suggestions the lead teacher gave to other teachers to help them redesign their spaces?

Margaret, really interesting concept of flipping administrative offices and classrooms and having the offices be the spaces that moved. Might be really great in helping school staff and administrators understand more about the goings on around the school (due to not having brick and mortar walls as barriers and having proximity to new parts of the school) which would help admin better identify problems and solutions at the school.

Also, your comment got me thinking about what would happen if students had the ability to rearrange their homeroom classroom or even redecorate it once a year. This would really help students feel a sense of ownership, belonging, would make it comfortable, and would also be a real-world learning opportunity. Students would have to critically solve the problem of designing a space using limited resources in order to meet the needs of increased productivity and focus in the classroom.
