Clip to ScrapBook #3

I am a K-3 sped teacher and I use the table the vast majority of the time. Like the pp said, it provides more structure. We are also doing some sort of writing in every lesson, and that wouldn't work out too well on the carpet. I also think students in this setting need to be in very close proximity to me- on the carpet if I'm standing/sitting in a chair and they're on the floor, that's not really close enough, and I'd get very uncomfortable sitting on the floor all day long.

I sometimes do read alouds with my K students on the carpet, and when I have any of the kids do partner activities that's a spot they sit in. I do have one group that I have a para with me for- I split the kids in half and they do activities with both of us, switching halfway through the block. I allow her to use the table while I sit on the carpet for that block. Otherwise I don't really use it for instruction.
