A Seat to Learn by One More Time!

My students need chairs to use at the computers without using the chairs at their desks, and an activity center.

My Students

We don't have chairs to sit at our desks. We don’t have chairs for our computer table. Every time I work with my students on computers, students have to lift their chairs and bring them over to the computer tables. With 31 students, it is tight quarters for sure. Please, we need computer chairs.

I work with 31 amazing sixth grade students in a hard-working, low-income neighborhood in New Jersey.

My students are mostly English language learners. Several students are special needs students, who require extra support to learn math, so we often work on computers to reinforce their skills in the classroom. When working at the computers the children drag the desk chairs to the computer table which is a big disruption to the other children. It would be nice to have the children moving and not the chairs.

My Project

Chairs may seem like a simple request. It may not seem like something inspiring, but it is something so necessary! My students have so many different needs. I spend a lot of time working with different groups of kids each and every day, all day. Our classroom has tables in the back where groups can work and computers for the children to work on their math skills. I do not have any chairs for the computers so they drag their desk chairs to the computers, which is very disruptive to the other children.

It is hard to fit 31 desks in our classroom, and it is a bit of a maze to try to bring chairs to the computers.

With just a few extra chairs we could focus on the important things – learning to read, write, comprehend, and do math! With something as a simple as a new chairs, my students can truly focus on learning. This will help students year after year. It may seem small, but with chairs we can all have a seat!
