My classroom is a happy and busy group of kindergarteners. Though they are only between the ages of five and six, these students have high aspirations for their futures. They are motivated, completely capable, and love learning.
They like to move, read, play and love lots of positive attention.
From the moment they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hoping to inspire even our earliest learners to continue to question the world around them and become empowered in their own voice to make a difference in the community.
Sitting in a circle fosters cooperation and collaboration. Currently, we have bulky rectangular tables that make movement throughout the classroom difficult. We have community supplies, so students share all the supplies in the classroom. I would love for my students to receive round tables in order to improve their small group work and enhance our classroom learning environment.
Students are working throughout the day in small groups and centers.
Having a round table to sit will keep student collaboration and cooperation flowing as well as make movement throughout the classroom much easier. As we move to a more flexible space, the adjustable legs will allow us to easily move the tables if necessary to fit any learning activity that may happen throughout the year.
From STEAM challenges to math and reading groups to art projects, round tables will be the perfect addition to my classroom and are ideal for collaborative learning in primary grades.
