Ms. OConnor from Brooklyn NY is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Moving and Grooving to Collaborate

Help me give my students the space they need to collaborate with their peers by using these tables and stools. With traditional desks, students are restricted to sitting in one place and are not able to easily move about.

My Students

Our school is located in Bushwick, Brooklyn and our ICT class is made up of a number of very unique students. Those students with IEPs in our class benefit from nontraditional seating and even those without IEPs show success when they are not forced to sit at desks which are placed in rows.

Our students succeed when we allow them to sit outside the box.

Students are therefore encouraged to move about the room to collaborate with their entire class.

My Project

Our students need to move out of traditional seating and be able to collaborate with their peers. Conventional seating restricts students from getting into deeper discussions and learning from the experiences of each other. Sitting in tables with a chair that is easily moved would make their discussions that much easier to conduct.

Tables are easily moved to create more space about the room and stools are easily moved and placed around the room to enhance their discussion ability.

Having these essential items would ensure our students the ability to conduct their discussions as per our class requirements in both ELA and SS.
