Ditch the Desk and Take a Stand

Help me give my students a choice in where they sit with flex-space seating options to empower them to take ownership of how and where they learn best while optimizing their comfort and increasing their focus.

My Students

My fourth graders are a diverse group of students. I have several special education students as well as general education students. Some are working below grade level, some are working on grade level, and some are above grade level learners. No matter what level they are, they should all feel confident and excited and important every day.

My classroom is a welcoming place where my students grow as thinkers and learners, and they are encouraged to reach their fullest potential on a daily basis.

My students need to be challenged, inspired, and engaged, in order to learn and make sense of the world around them. I work in a large district that serves a diverse population. Your donation to this motivating project will allow my students to move away from their desks and learn in ways that allow for individuality while fostering collaboration.

As students enter my classroom, I want them to feel that they are in a fun, safe place to learn and to be able to take risks and feel empowered.

My Project

Many of my students have a difficult time working at a desk and chair. This counter top table will provide my students the opportunity to stand while they work, resulting in better productivity.

When kids sit at a desk all day, they don’t have to use any energy, which means they can just as easily fall asleep, daydream, or distract themselves by distracting others.

Simply put, we think better on our feet than in our seat.

Standing desks are raised desks made so students can stand comfortably and work proficiently. They come in all shapes and sizes, just like humans, and are suitable for any student or classroom setting
