A finite element method is proposed and analyzed for the Reissner-Mindlin plate problem subject to various boundary conditions. Rotation and transverse displacement variables are approximated by continuous linear elements (enriched with local bubbles) and an $L^2$ projector is applied to the shear energy term onto the Raviart-Thomas $H(\mathrm {div};\Omega )$ finite element. Stability and optimal error bounds hold uniformly in the plate thickness.
