My Table or Yours?

My students need four tables that can accommodate small groups and that can be pushed together to accommodate larger groups.

My Students

I have an incredible group of returning students that I cannot wait to begin teaching this coming school year. For some of 'my boys' this will be their third and final year with me. It has been my joy and pleasure watching all of them grow.

My school is located in a suburb of Atlanta, GA.

We are a Title 1 school with 81% of our population on free and reduced price lunch. I teach special needs preschool students. I teach them from the day they turn three years old, if they qualify for services, and they leave me when they enter Kindergarten. My particular classroom contains mainly students with Autism or students who thrive in a more visual, structured classroom. Each and every student has something to teach me. I only hope that I can teach them something during the short time they are with me.

My Project

For years, I have tried and tried to figure out how to arrange the small and large group seating in my classroom with the two big rectangular tables in my room that were made for 'school aged' children. Since my children are typically smaller, these big and clunky tables have left me with little to no flexibility. Believe me, I have tried every way possible to arrange these tables to accommodate all of our needs, unfortunately since they are so big, when they are moved they create a 'domino' effect as everything around these tables has to move in some sort of way too.

These new and smaller, trapezoidal tables will allow me to move them at a moment's notice.

I can push two together, or all of them together to create a big group. It will be much easier to create seating to accommodate the family style eating that we implement during breakfast, lunch, and snack.
