Hello! Okay so here’s my dilemma, this is my first teaching job, teaching first grade at a small private school where resources are limited. The desks that were given to me for the kids are in pretty rough shape, so I thought it might be a good idea to bring in my own tables. I’ve been looking into the kidney shaped tables and so far the cheapest I found have been around $200. They look to be able to seat about 4 children at each table, but I’m only going to have nine kids this year so I’m trying to figure out if it’s worth spending $400 for two tables and putting four kids at one and five kids at the other. I’m mainly worried about spacing. Is that enough space to put five kids? What makes the most sense? I’m very conflicted. Help please! **I’ve gotten permission from Headmaster to bring my own tables if that’s what I end up doing.
