I have not used a graffiti table, but LOVE the idea. I have, however, used a graffiti wall. While learning about figures of speech, the students could record them on the paper hanging on the wall as they stumbled upon them in their reading. Also, when studying mythology, I used the same concept for students to share what they learned about mythological creatures, gods, goddesses, and events. It was a great way for them to learn from one another, share their learning, and display their learning to other classes. Thanks for sharing this idea. I hadn't thought of using it to jigsaw information during guided reading!!
