Today was the first day of table groups. Until now my students have been sitting in rows.
They helped move their desks while I supervised. Then we made a couple of changes.
There’s room to walk around now!
And, I can have class meetings, read aloud and mini lessons at the front of the room.
No more read aloud while sitting at their desks!
No more straightening out rows of desks in a crowded room. An almost impossible task.
No more working alone at a desk.
Some table groups have discussed what name to give themselves.
They’ve reintroduced themselves to each other at their tables and shared something about themselves in Spanish.
I spoke first:
Mi nombre es Sra. Waingort. Yo tengo tres hijos. Mis dos hijas viven en Estados Unidos. Mi hijo está en grado 11. Tengo una perra pastor alemán mixta que se llama Osa. Yo vivo con mi esposo y mi hijo.
