Common Boards Configurations v. 2013

The 4th Grade team showcase elements of their Common Board Configurations in their respective subject areas. These CBCs are used as teaching tools in the classrooms as they help students take ownership of their learning. Sentence strips or creative labels and simple electrical tape (available at the Dollar Store) help define the space. How do you utilize a Common Board Configuration? Leave us a comment and let us know.
