Preparing for Small Classroom Groups with Half Moon Tables

June 28, 2013 – 2:00 am: Education has come a long way. Despite the fact that we still imagine a classroom fully of forward-facing desks and teachers that never smile, the reality of the modern classroom is entirely different than the one we see in those old TV movies. More often than not, teachers interact with students on a regular basis throughout the day, commonly grouping students together into pairs and center partners.

One method of elementary classroom instruction in today’s classroom is called the small group learning center. One teacher sits in the middle of a half circle table with three to four students sitting around the outside. This becomes a method for isolated reading instruction where young learners can be taught based on their specific needs, rather than facing those weaknesses in front of the entire class.
