Ms. Wang from Sugar Land TX is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Together We Are More Powerful!

Help me give my students desks for group collaboration that enable a more flexible seating arrangement to help enhance their interpersonal communication skills and maximize their learning.

My Students

My students are from many different parts of the world. They live in Fort Bend County, Texas, one of the most diverse counties in the USA and a neighbor to Houston, TX.

All of them have been affected drastically by Hurricane Harvey.

Many of them were displaced, and at this moment, some families are still in the process of rebuilding their homes and their lives. School is a place that all students have to feel safe and welcomed; our community and students need extra help at this very critical moment.

My Project

My students love to work collaboratively with their peers around the classroom! My students enjoy working at desks, but the furniture in our classroom is not appropriate for grouping. Some of my classes have more than 30 students, and grouping with the currently available desks with attached chairs is extremely difficult. They are big and heavy, making it particularly difficult for students to move around and for me to closely monitor all of the groups to offer help during group activities. On occasions, we have to go outside of our safe classroom to work in the hallway to be able to have a group activity.

My students love cooperative learning and activities like Jigsaw groups.

With more flexible seating arrangements, we will have the opportunity to participate in these activities. They will be more engaged in the second language acquisition process, exchanging ideas and producing quality group work.

I would love to give the students more options for working on tasks around the room. Thus, this project is asking for contemporary desks and chairs. Learning in a more flexible space would really excite students and help maximize their learning potential.
