Birthdays and desks

A new month signals a change in our seating arrangement. Learning from our past attempt and keeping  in mind our agreement of making sure that there are at least two boys or two girls on every table, we decided on the guidelines for the next three months. For October, we will group ourselves by birthdays,on November by after-school activities and December by randomly picking names. Today we looked at all our birthdays and this prompted a student to ask,"Who is the oldest in our class?" We arranged our birthday strips in an array and found out many things about each other aside from our birthdays. To our delight, when we divided groups into four birthdays each, it produced desk assignments that aligned with our agreements!
