Bench Boost

My students need a bench to reach our Smartboard.

My Students

Could you imagine having a wonderful piece of technology in a classroom, and not having the appropriate means to allow students to use it?

My kindergarten students are a very diverse, energetic and imaginative group.

They love to use new things, especially our Smartboard! To use our board, they have to stand on a chair which isn't safe and is hard for students to move around on. Our school doesn't have the means to buy our students a bench and is unable to move the Smartboard height because of regulations.

My Project

This bench will allow students to safely and accurately move around to reach and manipulate our Smartboard. This will enable students to unleash their creativity with many technological programs and allow me to use this vital resource to use many visual aids and interactive tools for students further understanding.

This bench will allow my students to use the Smartboard the way it should be without the risk of getting hurt or falling off a chair!

Students will be able to move around safely and "reach" their full potential!
