Mrs. Critchley from Roy UT is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Small Groups to Help with Learning

My students need a kidney table for our classroom, so that I can work with them in small groups so concepts can be retaught and we can go deeper into concepts for those students above level.

My Students

I have a wonderful groups of seventh and eighth graders for Math. They have a desire to learn, but I have many students that struggle to grasp concepts. How can I help close the achievement gap when our classroom does not have the necessary materials to help the students be successful.

Our school background is that we are a low income school.

More than 50% of our students are on free or reduced lunch.

My classroom lacks the seating for me to help my students in small groups to help them be even more success and achieve more!

My Project

The use of a kidney table would have a daily use in my classroom, especially in math. Using the kidney table to model concepts in math, students will be able to be retaught concepts more effectively or the above learners will be able to go deeper in their learning of a concept. The kidney table will allow me to see exactly what the students are doing and help them with their understanding and misconceptions in a small group. Right now I try to walk around and help the students, but I don't have any where to help a small group that is struggling with the same concept. Even though they are great about doing this, it is distracting for many of my students who have focusing issues and they miss important instruction form either myself or other students. By having a kidney table, students will be able to avoid all of these problems and focus on increasing their learning!

By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement so that I will be able to do more small group instruction.

Students will be able to come to the kidney table and get help on concepts that they are not understanding at it will not take away from other students learning or be a distraction.
