Cheering for Chairs!

My students need 5 chairs to use at our writing/conference table.

My Students

I teach three 7th grade classes of English Language Arts.

Our school is located in an area of high poverty.

My classroom is an inclusive classroom, and I service students with various educational needs. I like to make sure that all their needs are met everyday.

Our school has suffered many budget cuts that has left us with very little money to purchase anything other then mandated material. However, none of these issues detract from my students desire to learn.

My Project

One of my first Donors Choose Projects was a kidney shaped table for writing and conferencing with students. The table is built for standard chairs not the little chairs that match student's desk. I had one rolling desk chair and 4 dinning room chairs from my house. Well wear and tear has taken it's toll on the old chairs. They have fallen apart and had to be thrown out. So the table only has 2 correct size chairs.

I need these 5 chairs to be able allow my students to comfortably be able to conference with me.

I have been utilizing a lot of small group instruction this year and the table can accommodate five 7th graders. I would like to use it more often then I currently do.
