I work in an inner city school with students of various ethnic and economic backgrounds. Free lunch is available for 90% of my population. Most of my students come from single parent / grandparent households. More than half of my students are ESL (English as a second language).
Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, and they yearn to learn more and more each day.
They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!
We have numerous programs that highlight small group instruction. It is hard to actively participate in small group instruction sitting at a desk. I want to get this large kidney shaped table to facilitate instruction. I will be close enough to hear and modify each childs' learning plan.
I can meet with a group of students but still provide individualized instruction to each member of the group.
The students will love sitting around this table and it will allow me to "meet" with more students without having to physically rotate around cumbersome desks. Rotating to small group will also be more efficient.
