Mrs. Keaton from Leesburg GA is requesting Other through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Fun Furniture for First Graders

My students need 3 new tables to replace the individual student desks that are about 30 years old.

My Students

Creating a fun, attractive classroom is an important part of establishing an environment where students feel safe and motivated to do their best work

My class of 24 high energy first graders work in small groups, with partners, and independently throughout the day.

I believe the students need time to move about the room during the day, so I schedule lessons and activities to accommodate their needs. Our classroom is always busy!

My Project

We recently received "ball chairs" through a previous Donors Choose project. The "ball chairs" are amazing (see impact from previous project), BUT they do not fit our small, stained, "vintage" desk that are about 30 years old. Our school/district is not able to purchase replacements for our classroom. My first graders are engaged, on task and working hard "rocking and rolling" on their balls throughout the day. All this "rocking" moves the individual desks every which way. Some students can not sit properly on their "ball chairs"(knees bent at a 90 degree angle) because the desks are so short and non-adjustable.

When we receive the requested tables, we will use them all day long.

These particular tables we have requested have a finished side on the bottom where the students can use their dry-erase markers to write their spelling words, math problems, and draw pictures. We will use the tops and the bottoms of the tables! The new tables will help our classroom stay neat and tidy. Replacing to old desks will free valuable square footage. Our "ball chairs" will fit under the tables when we leave our seats.
