My Students

I work with a wonderful group of 6th graders! They will be making the transition from elementary school to middle school this fall. I need a round "help table" to work with small groups.

A collaborative round activity table will be great for collaborative and group learning times.

It will allow the teacher to sit at the straight edge and be close to all students for easy teaching, correction of misunderstandings, or even rich small group discussions. Thanks for your help!

My Project

Working in small groups promotes collaboration and cooperation. I would like to purchase a horse-shoe shaped table and metal stools to encourage small group interactions. These groups could be working on extensions with or without teacher intervention or reteaching a lesson with teacher help. This new setup could also provide an alternative seating arrangement that some students may need.

Students need to move away from the traditional seating chart for different reasons, such as the inability to focus or need to be extended or retaught.

Please help me provide this wonderful space for my students to get more out of school!
