Ms. Sweeney from Chicago IL is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Classroom Furniture!

Help me give my students flex-space mobile trapezoid tables to create a collaborative learning space in our classroom. The tables are durable and mobile. The wobble chairs are a great alternative to traditional seating.

My Students

My classroom is in need of new tables and chairs! My students need a comfortable place to learn. I have such a sweet, hard-working group of 2nd graders! They are ambitious and love learning. Flexible seating is ideal for young, active learners.

All students are different and have different learning styles.

Providing different seating options and various areas to work promotes success in the classroom. Having comfortable seating options makes learning fun. When students are happy and comfortable they are more inclined to actively participate and learn.

My Project

These materials will help create a positive learning environment for my class. While I have tradtional seating options, flexible seating is a great way for students to learn. I like giving students a variety of seating options to best fit their needs. Giving students choice in where they sit and how they learn is crucial to their success.

The mobile tables will help me assist small groups of students.

It also helps accommodate our large group of students. These tables have wheels which allow me to move furniture and re-arrange the room to best make use of the space. These tables allow small groups of students to work together, and allow me to work with individual students or small groups.
