Here's The Skinny For Saving Space In A Math Classroom

Help me give my students space to move about the classroom so we are able to do group work and math centers. These tables will allow me to get to students that need help at their seat.

My Students

A large portion of our 7th and 8th grade population consists of students who receive free or reduced priced services and are considered at-risk. Forty-five percent of the student body are a minority race with 59% of all students economically disadvantaged. 14% are limited English proficient.

Our school is known as a trauma-sensitive school due to the number of students dealing with some form of abuse.

These are the years when several students speak up, usually for the first time, about their abuse, thus making school the last thing on their mind.

Several of the shelters in our community are in our attendance area, making us a very transient school. These students have several large gaps in their learning because it.

My Project

Older schools have lots of character and lots of small classrooms that make it difficult for middle school students to move about.

These four classroom tables will allow students to move about for group work, math centers, and safe exiting during drills.

They will replace four larger tables in the classroom. The length of the tables are the same, it is the depth that will give us 4-6 extra inches per row.

Middle school is also the time where students need to move either to wake up or to get the energy out of their system so they can focus again on the lesson.
