I currently have 29 wonderful 5th Grade students in my class! This is my first year teaching in the White Mountains of Arizona. I have students from all backgrounds and demographics of life! One of my student's biggest complaints is not having any room to move around in our classroom as well as not being able to work in small groups. I do have choices for flexible seating, but because of size of our current desks, we have no room (not to mention the condition of some of them) to utilize the options.
I know that my students and the students in the many years to come would truly appreciate being able to have more room, to be able to collaborate together, and have more options as to moving their own desks.
One thing is for certain, I LOVE my students and my school family! I truly consider it a privilege to be a teacher!
Currently we have very old and large rectangular desks in our classroom, which is actually a portable building. With that said, there is no room for much movement, let alone any flexible seating for my students.
Newer and smaller desks will enable my students to sit in cooperative groups, and collaborate together.
It will give us more room on the floor to be able to move, as well as utilize flexible seating in the classroom. The current desks are very heavy, and difficult for students to move. Something as simple as nice desks for my students truly would assist in their learning!
