Kneeling tables for work time . . . PLUS help for a storyteller with mobility issues!
These little “Lack” tables from Ikea (about $10 each) are 18″ square and 18″ high. I was fortunate to get my maintenance staff at school to cut the legs down to 12″ high. I did this when I was preparing for knee surgery and was unable to get down on the floor. Four of these tables can be placed in a vertical line (a la “Faces”), a horizontal line (“Creation,” “Advent,” or any Volume 6 story), or made into a square for a big central space (“Parable of the Good Shepherd,” or any parable). Fortunately, I am now able to be on the floor again, but that may not always be the case. Know that what really matters is being close to the children and placing the story materials where they can see (hence the 12″ height rather than 18″). I hope this helps someone else!
