As a teacher in a low-income area, my students are faced with many challenges both inside and outside the classroom. With their many challenges, my job is to be sure their classroom needs are met while their are in my care. I can't control what goes on at home but in school my job it to provide them with a safe and positive environment. I want to exemplify unconditional love and provide them with the greatest effective learning environment possible!
The use of tables will increase the primary focus of instruction which is collaboration learning. Without tables and chairs, it’s very difficult for my students to be success at this. Collaborative learning will be most successful with tables because it develops oral communication, high-level thinking, self-management and leadership skills. The tables are rectangular shaped activity tables. Each one can sit up to six students. This will allow room for larger grouping and personal space for the students. Getting new tables in our classroom will help maximize our classroom space and help keep students organized. With these new tables, my students will be able to exhibit great collaborative learning skills. I have seen how tables have increased the learning environment in classrooms and I hope this addition will increase ours even more.
