Collaborative Seating Options for an Interactive Classroom!

My students need to be engaged and collaborative as they learn in my math classroom! Students need these stools so they can work together on this table and interact with the whiteboard surface!

My Students

The group of students I am working with is an incredibly hardworking group of kiddos. My students are constantly striving to do their best and become math experts. In order to do this, they need to build a conceptual understanding of math. They enjoy projects and activities which help them to build number sense. At my school it is extremely difficult to get funding for new furniture through the school system. The budget cuts have been extreme, and a majority of the funding cannot be used on furniture.

The only way to get students to think critically and work collaboratively is to have collaborative seating options!

How do we expect students to learn to work together, be team players, and empower student leaders if we only have seating that allows for plain old boring rows? As if that is not enough, I have students who tear their clothes because they get snagged on broken edges while they walk by the desks. I believe that it is time to get some new furniture to ignite excitement and learning!

My Project

Right now students have the option of sitting in a row and the ability to write in their notebooks. Now, students can sit together and work in student teams to learn. This will change the way our math class is run! Students will be excited to work with their peers at an interactive, whiteboard table. Students will be able to build conceptual understanding by using manipulatives and playing math games at these tables!

This table and the stools will allow students to work collaboratively in groups and interact with the dry erase top of the table.

Who dreamed that math class could ever be so engaging!

Students will work in groups to solve math problems. They will have the option to work with peers or with teacher guidance to best meet their needs!
