My Students

We are a high poverty K-5 school with diversified ethnic backgrounds. Our children come to us with many needs.

They need to learn how to listen to others, to grow from their ideas, and to build community.

They need to be heard, acknowledged, and recognized for their successes. They need to develop social skills. And they need to be as free from distractions as possible so all their attention can focus on each other in a shared learning environment. Those are the needs I am trying to address in this project.

My Project

Currently, my students are using individual lift top desks. Many of them are old with broken hinges and leveling feet that fall off when the desks are moved. Fingers are sometimes caught when desk tops unexpectedly slam shut on them. When desks are pushed together to form "tables", the desk tops are not always even which sometimes results in shared materials being tipped.

Having tables instead of desks will allow students to collaborate more effectively with shared materials and eliminate the constant squeaks and slams of the desk tops that distract the class.

Attention can be focused on listening to each other and helping each other with the task at hand rather than fidgeting with objects inside their desk. Having one large smooth working space will also make it easier for students to create charts and posters for others to easily view. Finally, sitting together at team tables will provide the opportunity for students to develop greatly needed social skills.
