My students need a horseshoe shaped table to help facilitate learning when we work together!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I am a reading intervention teachers, so my classroom looks a little different. Instead of having the same children all day, I pull students from both 3rd and 4th grade who need extra support in reading. Students are either working directly with me in small groups, or in literacy centers.
At KIPP, we promise our students a future that includes college and a life of their choosing.
We promise them that if they work hard they will succeed and not be bound by the constraints of their zipcodes. In order to fulfill those promises, I work every day with students who need more support to meet our grade level expectations.
A horseshoe table is an important tool for an educator. The table allows us to sit in the middle of a small group of students. We have access to each child and each child has access to us. We are able to see and hear each student as they read, and we are able to teach individually as needed. Having this table is a necessary tool for us to be successful in our classroom.
As I said above, the table will directly impact the interaction I am able to have with my small group of students.
We will be able to see each other face to face. Additionally, having a nice piece of furniture sends a message to the child that our work together is important - it is not something that is haphazardly thrown together. We are working efficiently and urgently towards our goals.
