My Students

Sixth grade is such an exciting time for middle school students. I want my classroom to be able to help their many different learning styles and giving them the freedom to sit where they learn best is just a start! I received 8 bar stools from a nearby restaurant, and I purchased high bar tables on my own. I would like to be able to give them moveable tables, desks, and chairs!

Please help our classroom become an even more enriching learning environment!

My Project

Students will be able to work and move around the classroom easier. These tables will be a major upgrade from their desk and chair option that makes it hard to put students together in groups. I chose these tables because it allows 2-4 students to work together in close proximity. The tables are even height so that materials may be laid flat for group work. Many teachers are decking out their learning spaces with this new student-centered style.

Instead of the traditional classroom with rows and rows of desks, I want to test the waters with a variety of seating arrangements.
