Let's Table This Discussion

My students need rectangular tables that allow for collaboration, social development, and stimulating conversation.

My Students

My classroom is full of vibrant, active, and curious learners. I want to ensure that I am doing everything I possibly can to engage and inspire my students to go out and change our world. Our society is no longer dependent on pencil and paper skills. We need inventors, creators, thinkers, and doers, and I want to develop these skills in my classroom.

I teach at the lone school in our district that does not qualify for Title 1 grants; therefore, we rely on our own pocketbooks to fund most of our projects.

I'm reaching out as an advocate on behalf of my students to get the materials and supplies we need as we run full steam ahead into the future.

My Project

My school has had the same, old desks for almost 15 years. Currently, we have partner-style desks with plastic sliding trays for storage. The trays do not allow for organization or neatness, and the desks are very worn. They are heavy, bulky, and difficult to move around. In our classroom, we are moving from the outdated teaching style of everyone sitting behind their own desk, not talking to anyone, to a more project-based, small group learning environment.

To better accommodate this new learning style within our classroom, we need furniture that allows students to collaborate.

We are requesting new rectangular tables that allow small group-style seating. This will let our students have meaningful talk about their learning, while giving them a setting to work on group projects.
