A Kidney Table for Team 111, Please!

My Students

Students on Team 111 come from diverse backgrounds with a variety of learning needs and strengths. Despite their personal challenges, they come to school excited and ready to learn each day.

As part of a balanced literacy approach, I provide small group instruction based on each student’s academic area of focus.

To ensure that I meet the needs of each student, students rotate through “centers,” which is Team 111’s favorite time of the day! While I meet with a small group, other students complete various tasks such as “read-to-self,” “write-to-self,” work on iPads, or “math jobs.” Currently, our class does not have a conducive space for small-group learning. We work at a small round table that can fit three students at most, so materials often overlap when there are more students. Sometimes, we work on the floor, but handling clipboards, books, and writing materials is challenging for students. Having a dedicated area for small group instruction will help us focus on reaching our learning targets!

My Project

Team 111 would like a kidney table, which will be an essential learning zone for everyone. Students will meet at the kidney table during guided reading, one-on-one conferring and testing, math group, and push-in support for ELL (English Language Learners).

The kidney table will have a positive impact on my current students’ learning and will continue to be of use to future students.

With a kidney table, students can work comfortably in groups. Instead of being distracted by missing or overlapping resources, students can solely focus on learning!
