What questions do you have about going desk less?
What ideas do you have to share? (Pictures, links, tips, Pinterest Board, etc)
Stand up desks
Lower desks and sit on pillows
Different sitting options
Bed Risers to raise desks - make a standing desk
Check local universities for surplus store sales
Share with students where you work at home … it’s not always a desk
Ask students what they think about the best work spaces for them.
Post a video on your classroom webpage of a tour of your classroom and include why you find certain things so helpful/important
DonorsChoose- Public school teachers need to sign up!
Keep projects smaller to get funded quicker
December is a good time to get funded - people trying to get tax write offs.
State Education Association might have grants
Local Carpet stores can donate carpet squares
Yoga Mats - $5 below … cut them in half
Yoga Balls at $5 Below too
