I have 72 sixth graders that range in ability. We change classes for math, science, and language arts. We are a Title I school with a small group of ESL students in our sixth-grade group.
Of this terrific group of students, we have twelve who are served in our exceptional children's program.
We also have several academically gifted students that are served in either one subject or both. We have 5 students who are served in the English as a Second Language program.
This particular group of students has their PE, music, and STEM/Art class first thing in the mornings. These extremely active sixth graders must then sit through two different classes before lunch then another two classes after lunch! A little over 20% of our sixth graders are currently diagnosed as having ADD/ADHD.
As I continue to enhance my flexible seating classroom I hope to add this dry erase table as a way to encourage collaboration among students while also allowing students to have an area to write ideas and solve problems right in front of them on the table itself. I have dry erase sheets that I have placed at various places in the classroom and my students love working there. I would love to have a table where I can meet and conference with small groups and the dry erase table would allow for this rather than having students having to carry dry erase boards with them to a table with very limited work space.
