Collaboration and Community Tables to Grow Careful Classroom Learners

My Students

I have an amazing group of fourth-grade students! They are imaginative, hard-working, and ready to exceed at all they do. My classroom is a wonderful mix of cultures and ideas. I have learners of all types who want to do their best. I have flexible seating options, and this year to help students engage, as well as, I would like to include some new types of tables for collaboration.

Careful readers, writers, and mathematicians must work together.

I am excited to see what will be accomplished by this group of amazing learners.

My Project

Collaboration tables allow students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, sitting under tables with clip boards, or sitting or laying on the floor. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component for their success. At this time I have one alternate table, and the class all wants to sit at that one table. My goal is a couple more tables for collaboration, community building,and learning to happen. They are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.
