Uniform Classroom Desks Needed to Facilitate Group Work
Help me give my students pen-sront student desks that will provide an equal opportunity for cooperative learning groups and Kagan structures.
Our school has been a California Distinguished School several times. The dedicated teachers and staff make it a wonderful place to learn.
In my class of 28-second graders, there will be at least 4 students who are English language learners.
Although my school is not yet classified as Title I, each year there are more and more students who are from homes that are struggling financially.
The parents are hardworking people who commute long hours to provide for their children.
Currently, my classroom has a mixture of large desks of varied heights and sizes, making group work difficult as the desks do not match up. I have searched within our district for matching desks, but at this time none are available. The smaller desks that I am requesting will provide both a consistent work-space for each student and will accommodate cooperative groups. I have a classroom that has particular space challenges. The small desks will make more room for flexible seating opportunities within the room. Furthermore, my current seating claims most of the floor space which decreases our ability to move freely and safely around the classroom. I would like more available floor space to promote STEAM activities in my classroom, as well.
