Terrific Table Time

Help me give my students a more personalized learning experience by providing a table that allows for a smaller group setting in which students can work more closely with the teacher.

My Students

I work in a wonderful school with excited, motivated students. They always inspire me with their love of learning. Our school has a majority of high socioeconomically disadvantaged children. We are a Title I school with many cultures represented (mostly Latino and Vietnamese). Many of these students live in neighborhoods that tend to be unsafe and underprivileged which causes a lack of opportunities.

I truly believe in our motto of "preparing all children as global learners." I hope to give these students as many resources as they may need in order to become successful both in and outside of the classroom.

Your donations would truly be appreciated!

My Project

During the school day it is important that students are given opportunities to work in smaller groups. Having a space in which students can gather and work closely with the teacher allows them to get individualized attention and instruction.

Small group interaction during all types of instruction is one of the most valuable strategies for helping students excel in their reading.

A horseshoe table allows the teacher to reach multiple students in a small group. This gives the teacher and students a more personal interaction so that each student gets the specific instruction they need.

Within the classroom,​ there is a large range in reading and math abilities. Because of this the students need more one to one time with the teacher. Having a table like this will greatly benefit every learner in the classroom.
