I teach in a Title I elementary school where students receive free or reduced-price lunch. My first graders are very eager young learners. My majority of my students are of Haitian descent. My school has an enrollment of approximately 450 students.
My students are excited about technology.
They enjoy books, hands-on activities and new learning experiences. Most of my students come from homes with limited resources so it is essential for me to expose them to as many new experiences as possible. I have several students with focusing and emotional problems. My school has limited resources. While I would love for all my students to be exposed to the worldwide web on a daily basis, we are forced to share desktop computers and laptops.
My students will use this table when they attend their small groups. This table would make a difference in my classroom because it will allow them to sit comfortably on their cushion mats. I have implemented flexible seating in my classroom. The tables in our classroom are old and cannot be adjusted to their height.
I believe my students will become better learners when they are comfortable in their environment.
This table is small and easy to adjust to the height of my students. I have noticed that my young learners are fidgety and have a hard time remaining in their seats. While I use stability balls for my kidney table, our small group tables are not adjustable. The legs are wobbly. I fear that moving the tables around will cause one of them to break.
