Great classroom tables will help improve student work and classroom organization. Which school tables should you get? You should choose classroom tables based on size, shape and color. Hertz Furniture's top-notch selection of activity tables will transform your study space into an inviting learning environment where students are happy and comfortable.
What activities can be done at classroom tables?
School tables can be used for a number of important classroom activities. When you are working on an arts and crafts project, the easiest way to make sure that every student gets the right materials and has an appropriate work space is to seat them around activity tables. This arrangement provides personal work areas that are organized, while at the same time seating students close to one another, which encourages collaboration and interaction.
Academic activities are easy to facilitate and supervise when children are seated at a school table. This arrangement makes it simple for teachers to walk around and observe each student's work. With a few separate activity tables, you can seat students according to different ability levels or subjects so each individual can work on subject matter that is appropriate. This enables educators in a collaborative teaching arrangement to work with various small groups separately. Alternatively, this setup can be used to encourage students to work together and learn how to take advantage of each other's strengths.
What shape activity table should I get?
Certain activity table shapes are particularly helpful to teachers who like to work with intimate groups of students. A kidney or horseshoe activity table provides a perfect space for the teacher to sit and interact with a small number of students. With the teacher seated on one side and all students facing in that direction, it is convenient to supervise individual work or communicate with the whole group. This arrangement is ideal for math groups or reading groups. It can also help when a few students are in need of extra assistance with meeting Common Core State Standards or other learning requirements.
The classic square and round school tables have their advantages as well. A square table gives each child a clear personal space, which minimizes kicking and squishing. Round tables encourage students to work together because all students that are seated around them can see each other. While each of these shapes has its advantages, the right one will ultimately depend on your classroom layout.
In addition to having classic and convenient table shapes, we also offer a number of fun classroom tables with creative configurations. Trapezoid-, flower-, clover- and plus-shaped school tables create engaging work spaces. Whichever shape or shapes you choose, school tables also provide a great place for snack time, and even mealtimes.
What is a good color for an activity table?
Any color that will entice your students and make a classroom more inviting is a great choice. You can add some enriching color to your preschool or daycare with Educational Edge activity tables. Brightly-colored accents introduce a little touch of vibrant hues that will create a more friendly and inviting space. Educational Edge activity tables have colored edge banding and some include colored legs and ball glides as well.
How do I know what size school tables to get?
Make sure to note the heights of the school tables you are considering for your classroom. Adjustable-height tables offer the ultimate in flexibility because they can be adapted to suit students of various ages and sizes. If you work in an early-childhood center or daycare, toddler tables are essential. When little ones have appropriately-sized preschool tables, it is easier for them to learn proper posture and develop motor skills.
In addition to the classic school table model, we also have specialized classroom tables. If you want to add some desktop computers to your study space, we have a wonderful selection of computer tables that will serve your students well. For the preschool or daycare learning space we also have sand and water tables which facilitate fun skill-building activities.

Hertz Furniture has the activity tables you need to provide the ideal space for your students, no matter what your classroom setup is.

With Hertz Furniture's large collection of OFM furniture, you can choose from a huge number of models. No matter what your budget is, there is an OFM task chair that can fit the bill. Take your office to the next level with beautiful furniture from OFM.
Nothing can replace comfortable seating in an office or school. When people have a supportive place to sit, they are able to maximize productivity and maintain a better outlook throughout the day. Even when seating is only used on a temporary basis, no one can truly enjoy a ceremony or performance when they are seated in an uncomfortable chair. OFM folding chairs and stacking chairs are ideal for events and performances. They look and feel great, so you can easily transform a gym into an auditorium or a social hall into a banquet venue.
Guests, visitors and clients also need a place to sit while they are waiting for meetings or appointments. When choosing reception furniture, it is important to balance style and comfort. OFM reception chairs and guest chairs come in many styles and colors which can be coordinated to wall colors or other furniture. From fabric chairs to beam seating, the possibilities are virtually endless.
A few fabric chairs will fit in well in the lobby of a law firm or startup where there won't be more than a few people waiting at a time. In a doctor's office or any other place where there could be a number of people waiting, beam seating is a great choice. It provides individual seats in a long row so everyone can have personal space but many people can sit at once.
Office chairs are the most important seating that will have the greatest impact on your company. When employees can sit properly, they are able to work better and faster, and stay happier while they do it. OFM offers a variety of ergonomic office chairs which have different combinations of adjustable features and upholstery choices. Ergonomics is especially important when considering computer furniture. When professionals are properly supported throughout the day by appropriate computer chairs, they can go home without aches and pains.
The right seating is not complete without equally appropriate tables. Give students or employees a great place to take coffee breaks or eat lunch with intimate cafe tables. When hosting a professional-development session or external seminar, functional training tables are essential. With sleek seminar tables, you can provide a great space for taking notes, so participants can easily follow the presentation.
Tables are also an integral piece of conference furniture. Aside from the reception area, the other space where clients and potential business partners are most likely to go when they visit an office is the conference room. The conference table is the centerpiece of the room which sets the tone for the rest of the space. Make sure to choose a shape and size that fit the number of people you will have in the room comfortably.
In the educational setting functional, budget-friendly furniture is a must-have. Educators need appropriate work spaces just as much as their students and other professionals do. Show your hard-working teachers that their efforts are appreciated by providing teachers desks in every classroom. With a work surface and some convenient drawers, it is easy for educators to stay organized and prepare engaging lessons.
With OFM's enticing line of office and school furniture, visitors, students and employees will look forward to entering your beautifully-furnished space. When you combine cozy and supportive seating with sleek, functional work surfaces, you can't go wrong. Give your employees and students the all-star treatment they deserve with OFM furniture.
