Mrs. Lyons from Summit NJ is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Sit a Little, Stand a Little, Learn A Lot!

My students need four stools to go with our standing desks.

My Students

My students are a delightful mix of 2nd graders who attend a Title I School in an otherwise affluent school district. These children come to school each day eager to work and learn as much as they can. Because a significant number of students come from low-income families, many consider their time at school their second home.

Our school community is charged with closing the achievement gap that exists between our students and their peers across town.

Although this challenge is exciting, we are in constant search for ways to increase our students time on task, and to give them the tools they need to stay focused on whatever the objective is at any given moment.

My students have been so blessed with materials to enhance learning, however, a classroom relocation requires creative thinking for personal space. Having exhausted a full school search for available resources, we turn to you our generous donors to help us create personal spaces.

My Project

The stools I am requesting will be used with the standing desks already provided by our generous donors. The desks are available for the students who need to move in order to stay focused on their work. The stools will enable my students who utilize our standing desks to sit for a bit when needed.

These stools will allow them to not only rest when tired of standing, but to continue to allow movement by using the swing bar with their feet.

The additional movement of going from standing to sitting, and back again, will help them to keep their focus on their academics.
