Help me give my students two Convert-A-Benches so they have small group work areas to use for math, science, literature circles and writer's conferencing.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My class is made up of diligent, inspiring, and creative fourth graders with big hearts and analytical minds. They attend school every day with purpose and a desire to learn something new, to discuss what they think, and take pride in their efforts. My students learn in a bilingual community with a high level of family support. They attend our school with growing technology opportunities that enhance their approach, application, and articulation of their knowledge and their new learning. We balance this with many opportunities to develop creativity and physical fitness through sports. We support the development of persistence, teamwork, and determination.
My students thrive on working collaboratively. Providing flexible spaces to do this is important. My students enjoy spaces where they can take on collaborative conversations, peer support, and contributions to each-other's thinking. The two benches being requested convert from a bench seat to a table. This flexible space allows for students to work with various materials in different ways.
This space will further promote teamwork, peer support, and extended areas for critical thinking.
Student will be able to host their writing conferences, prepare for math summits, extend their science lab sheets, and engage in literature circles while enjoying the flexibility the benches offer.
