Thank you for your continued feedback. The feature team is actively working on this highly requested feature. We are testing the first release that will have the ability for meeting hosts to create breakout rooms, assign the users to the rooms and call them back to the main room. Please see our roadmap for current status here: https://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=Microsoft%20Teams&searchterms=65332.

Parent of a Kindergarten student here, and my son's class is using Teams. Right now, if she wants to meet with 3-5 students, or even just one on one quickly for their sight word test, the teacher has to leave the general meeting, and has created an entire seperate "room" for this meeting, leaving the rest of the class unattended (she gives them something to do, and of course they are home with their parents).
But it would be very cool, and helpful, if she could be able to keep an eye on the whole class, but only speak to either one, or a few, at a time. Where only those students can hear each other but the rest of the class cannot. She would be able to choose to talk to just one at a time, privately. Maybe this is how the breakout rooms would work.
I also have a second grader using a laptop and if one student is having an issue with an assignment or finding an assignment, the entire class has to listen to the teacher explaining how to fix it while working on their assignment. So a breakout room would be good here for the students that found the assignment, but the teacher could just speak to those having issues finding it.

Work is continuing on this highly requested feature. We want to make sure that you can do collaborative learning or group tasks in an online class meeting or staff training.
