Remember sitting in those cramped school desks with the chairs attached? Papers sliding off, no room to stretch your legs, group work almost impossible due to no shared space? As students enter back into the building after summer and COVID, help me provide them with an alternative to old school seating. The bar height tables I am requesting allow students to work either sitting or standing, while the adjustable chairs not only swivel but are much comfier than a traditional desk. Whether they choose to stand or use the swivel chairs, the ability to move while in class has been shown to strengthen and enhance learning. The donations to this project will allow my students choice in work area, flexibility to move, the ability to work collaboratively, and of course, comfort. I've noticed in the past that giving my students choice in where they work leads to more productive and engaged minds. The bar height tables and chairs will allow my students the choice to work standing or sitting and give them the flexibility to move! This is an added benefit for all students, especially those with special needs who need the ability to move during class. In our class, we do a lot of collaborative group work. Trying to work in groups while sitting at the traditional one-piece desks is cumbersome. The desks don't "group" together in a way that allows students to have a joined work area. An added benefit to the bar height tables and chairs is that they are easily moveable and can create group work areas. After being at home due to COVID, please help me offer my students a more comfortable alternative to traditional seating that will benefit their minds and bodies!
