Question Detail

Hi I will be a first year fourth grade teacher this year. What does everyone think about using tables in the classroom with diy storage crate stools?

I will have the students store a lot of their immediate supplies in the crates.

      Tables are great and make it easy to do group work and cooperative learning. You may want a storage bag of sorts to hang over the chair (look on Pinterest) so that the kiddos can keep handy the things they will need during the day. Otherwise they will be up and down all day going to the crates.

        Great idea as long as your students are well behaved, and can work collaboratively.

          I love the idea but wonder how easily the crates can be moved? Or if they will need to be moved? I think the more options students have to find locations to work that work for them, the more comfortable they feel in a classroom. Can they move their crate and use it to write on elsewhere in the classroom?

            I think that its a great idea. How is going for you? Anything to share with other Tchers?
