Creating a Small Group/Teacher Guided Area Without a Special Table

Not every teacher has room in their classroom to set up a separate small group teaching station. I love this idea that I saw in my journeys through many classrooms in our district that uses the students desks to become her “kidney shaped table.” The portable rolling cart becomes her teaching station for the small group.

Notice that this U-Shaped area is located near the whiteboard in the front of the room.  Each student has a desk, but during certain times of the day the students rotate to different stations.  A rule of the class is that you respect the owner of the desk you are sitting at and DO NOT use items from their desk.
By the way this was a 5th/6th Multigrade Classroom.

  1. I like this idea! I have a round table in my room but I'll be too far from the student directly across from me if I use it for small group instruction. Thanks for sharing!

    Marvelous Multiagers!
