Mrs. Miller from Burtonsville MD is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Yes, Please Write On the Tables - Round Three!

Help me give my students these whiteboard tables and chairs to help increase attention and engagement. Tables to write on allow us to integrate visual thinking strategies. Moveable tables increase opportunities for collaborative work and active learning strategies!

My Students

My students come from a variety of socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. The vast majority (over 90%) are minority students, and over half come from economically disadvantaged households. In total, I teach five classes of 8th grade English.

My students are bright, funny, optimistic, and creative, with diverse talents and strengths.

My students have thrived on visual thinking routines. I would like to increase the use of visual thinking in my classroom, as well as replace the old desks that we currently have in the classroom.

My Project

Help me replace old, shabby student desks with whiteboard tables and chairs. Whiteboard tables are fun and exciting for students and allow them to creatively express ideas and track their thinking. Our new tables and chairs will provide opportunities for student movement, collaboration, regrouping and flexible seating.

Whiteboard tables can help increase student engagement and actually help them remember and internalize concepts by giving them the opportunity to create mind maps, use sketchnotes and explore concepts with visual cues.

These tables will also increase the collaborative learning opportunities in my classroom, allowing students to more easily work, share ideas and create projects in small groups. Finally, my students will benefit from being able to work one-on-one or in small groups with a teacher for scaffolding and differentiation.
