Hi everyone,

I've got an extra table in my classroom that I don't want to get rid of because I think it may be put to good use and I don't want to need it once I "let it go". I'm thinking of using it as a "work" table for the students. I was thinking of maybe putting a container of highlighters out and keeping chairs around it. However, I'd like to know what YOU ALL would use it for? I want it to be used and used well, not just storage .


Thanks for any ideas!

maybe....if it's small, put a cute table cloth on it with flowers. Maybe it can be your "showcase" area for student of the week.

I had a "creative" table in my room. It could be used for writing, drawing, arts/crafts, etc. When we had some minutes of free time, the kids could use the table for a variety of "creative things" they wanted to do. I left a small plaster 3 storage drawer next to the table with drawing books, yarn, string, dobbers, markers, construction paper, etc. I was amazed at the creative things the kids would make!

I just bought some great puzzles at a yard sale...thanks for the idea! I'm sure they'll love it!

Thanks so much! I would have never thought of that!

Buy bedraisers for each leg of the table and then buy a few bar stools (Target) for it. No matter what you put at the table, the kids will think it's cool. I did this to my computer tables and guided reading table. (I just got tired of bending over so much

maybe a large puzzle that could stay there safely until completed

I have an extra round table in my classroom. I use it for centers....during reading my students may use it for word work or poetry. During math my students may use it for a math game or an activity using manipulatives. That way little pieces don't get all over the floor...an attempt at keeping things neater.
