Mrs. Olson from Kinnelon NJ is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Tall Tables for Tall Kids.

My students need the three piece pub set for collaborative learning groups at a high schooler's height, gaming chairs for flexible seating, and tables to pair with the futon we already have in our room.

My Students

Remember the Island of Misfit Toys? Welcome to my classroom. I teach high school students with high functioning disabilities who have a strong desire to do well in life outside of the classroom. Trying to get around the stigma of small class life, my students are active within the school and community.

Fidgeting, roaming, and pacing are common outlets for my anxious high school students who look to my room as a sanctuary.

I often hear "I can only learn in this room" or "why can't other teachers have rooms like this". My students know that they are always welcome in my room and that it's always evolving to become that safe space that they need.

My Project

Studies show that flexible seating can enhance student learning. Allowing students the choice to identify the best learning environment is a skill that will promote advocacy in special needs students. Flexible seating allows for collaboration between peers and puts the teacher on a similar level to the students creating a more welcoming environment.

The tall pub tables will allow our 6' tall students a more comfortable work environment.

Setting up two of these tables will make it easy for students to collaborate rather than the traditional desk setting. We currently have two standing desks with fidget bars in our classroom which are a great way for students to release energy but don't offer additional space for another student to work cooperatively.

The reclining game chairs will be positioned in our reading area which also is conveniently located near our SmartBoard. The lap desks will allow students to comfortably sit in the gaming chairs while still maintaining the ability to take notes.
