Furniture for the Classroom
Furniture designed for convenience and comfort helps students and instructors have better learning experiences by contributing to a pleasant environment with accessible resources and few distractions. Create an area conducive to learning with classroom furniture, from complete furniture packages right down to the decorative details like classroom flags.
Get the Basics so Students Can Settle in to Study
Classroom tables and chairs are essential as they provide students and teachers with places to sit and surfaces for holding study materials and completing activities. Keep it simple with hardwood birch chairs and rectangle tables from Wood Designs or select group interaction tables, cubby tables, deluxe science activity tables, sand and water tables, or other designs appropriate to your specific classroom needs.
For a quick and simple answer to the need to furnish a complete classroom, Wood Designs also offers classroom furniture packages. Develop a reading area with the Literacy Classroom Furniture Package, accommodate active kids with a variety of colorful but practical furnishings by selecting the Healthy Kids Color Furniture Classroom Package, or prepare for some hands-on learning with the Sensory Classroom Furniture Package. Browse additional options to discover the package best suited to your teaching style and students’ needs.
Personalize Your Classroom
Furniture selection can play a role in personalizing your classroom to best accommodate the age group of your students, the subject matter you teach, and your teaching style.
Furniture should accommodate students comfortably and allow instructors to engage them in appropriate activities. Selecting the right size of chairs is important as is selecting items appropriate to the age group and subject to be taught. For example, young children can benefit from items that develop their motor skills, such as activity tables including the Fun Builder Table by Synergy or construction materials including the Imagibricks Giant Building Construction Blocks by Smart Monkey. Language arts classrooms could benefit from the Literacy Classroom Furniture Package, Library and Display Center or the Big Book Display from Wood Designs, whereas an art classroom can benefit from art furniture and easels, and a science classroom can benefit from a Deluxe Science Activity Table—whatever your subject there’s furniture designed with your particular needs in mind.
Additional items can allow you to further take control of your space, such as versatile partitions to block out distractions, chair socks to mute noise from chair legs moving against flooring, locking furniture for housing teacher’s resources, and classroom flags to inspire patriotism.
Add Accessible Storage Spaces
Organization is key to keeping a classroom running smoothly, and having the right place for every item can help keep the focus on learning. Coats, backpacks, textbooks, workbooks, games, puzzles and other items would be in disarray without the proper classroom storage areas. Locker options for students’ personal items include Wood Designs’ Tip-Me-Not Tray Storage Units, Section Offset Lockers, and Cubby Storage Cabinets. Early Learning Resources offers Collapsible Crates with Ventilated Sides that act as versatile storage units appropriate for personal items or classroom resources.
