Rolling Chairs are Fun for Learning and Collaborating!
Help me give my students computer chairs for the computer center in the media center! Working on the computers in wooden chairs is not preferable for learning. Students can easily move their chairs to collaborate with others.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
Our school is an International Baccalaureate (IB) school where the IB profiles of inquirer, risk-taker, communicator, knowledgeable, thinker, open-minded, caring, balanced, and reflective are taught.
Our elementary school is a wonderful place to learn and teach.
It has a very diverse Pre-K to 5th-grade student population of approximately eight hundred students and a diverse faculty in an urban neighborhood. Our student population is 8% Asian, 25% Black, 26% Hispanic, and 41% White. We have 35% of our students on free or reduced-price lunch. We value our diversity!
Students love the rolling chairs we currently have at the computer tables. They love that they can easily roll up to the desk, turn to talk to a friend and they love the soft seat, as opposed to the hard, uncomfortable wooden chairs we currently have.
We need rolling chairs at the computer tables in the media center to enhance the overall learning experience in the media center.
Students love to feel like adults. Most adults I know work in a rolling chair, not a wooden chair that doesn't roll. These 4 requested rolling chairs for the media center will complete our set of rolling chairs. I have already received 6 rolling chairs from Donors Choose in the past. Students push the wooden chairs away to sit in the rolling chairs but we need 4 more.
