For the younger grades, teachers try to encourage students to work well in groups. That is why you will find more and more classrooms with student desks grouped together instead of the old favorite of rows of single desks.
You might also want to try using activity desks instead of individual ones for your students. These tables can come in fun shapes that can compliment the décor of the classroom or topics related to the curriculum.
People often underestimate the impact that tables and seating arrangements in the classroom can have on the progress children make. Facilitating positive teamwork skills is very important in early education. Activity tables cab play a big role in that development.
They can be designed to accommodate a specific number of students, with room for books, notebooks, art supplies and more. So think about the physical space available in your classroom, the number of students in your classes, and what you will be teaching. Then you will have a better idea of size, shape and capacity desires for your tables.
