My students need a table for writing and completing other small-group guided reading writing and math lessons. Currently we hold our books, papers, pencils and manipulatives in our hands during small group sessions.
Dear Friends, I teach a group of amazing 2nd graders in a French Language Immersion Program. They come ready to learn and I am in awe at their love and adaptability to the French language. I have a great community of parents who are highly engaged and supportive with resources as much as they can. This school year, I have seen my students make astounding growth on benchmark reading tests as they prepare for 3rd grade. Of course, growth in reading in many ways translates to growth in math because they can then read, understand and analyze word problems. The take away here is that these awesome 7 and 8 year olds are doing all these learning and critical thinking in a 2nd language, French.
Currently, we hold our small-group guided learning sessions on the carpet. Eight students sit around the carpet holding clip boards, pencils, books, activity papers and manipulative. Writing is especially difficult because students have no solid surface to set their papers. Having a small group activity table will provide a comfortable work area for students. They will sit on chairs, have a solid surface to hold their writing books, activity papers, pencils and manipulative; rather than juggling everything in their hands. The teacher will also have a comfortable setting for a more engaging and painless (no body aches) small-group guided lessons.
