A Kidney Table for Kindergarten

My students need a small group table to use for academic groups.

My Students

My students love coming to school. Their enthusiasm for learning makes teaching them a blast! Our school is located in one of the poorest areas in our city and many of my students live in poverty.

My students are young and eager to learn.

They like to sing, dance, and play. They love learning with their hands. They are full of enthusiasm. I want them to have many opportunities to live a successful life. For many, it starts in my classroom.

My Project

A small group table will make a huge difference in my student's classroom. Our small groups in the mornings consist of math, language arts, computers, writing and group play. We already have a small group table for math but the table we use for our reading group is tiny and uncomfortable! My students and I don’t have enough room to store our materials.

The most effective way for kindergarteners to learn are in small groups.

A large kidney table will give my students plenty of room for their crayons, pencils, scissors, glue sticks and other learning materials we use in groups. It will allow our academic groups be more organized and run smoothly.
