Activity Tables

Activity Tables
Activity tables are some of the most important pieces of furniture in any preschool or elementary school classroom. They are used on a constant basis for class work, games and projects. Attractive school tables can add a lot to your study space and help lessons run smoothly.

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.

Don't underestimate the potential impact of appropriate classroom furniture on the learning and overall educational experience of your students. Hertz Furniture has the activity tables you need to provide the ideal space for your students, no matter what your classroom setup is. Our classroom tables come from top school furniture manufacturers including Academia, Mahar Manufacturing, ECR4Kids, Allied Plastics and Wood Designs.

Tired of the same old school furniture designs' Academia Furniture brings you ergonomic and eco-friendly activity tables, school seating, school desks and much more. Whether you need to furnish a high school classroom, computer lab or preschool, Academia School Furniture offers the modern styling you need to bring your learning space into the twenty-first century.

All of Academia's models are designed for long-term use in the educational environment. In fact, with 25-year and Limited Lifetime Warranties you are guaranteed to enjoy the benefits of this versatile and colorful school furniture for many years to come. The huge selection of styles and materials is sure to fit any budget or preference.

Classroom work spaces can be supplied by activity tables or school desks. Activity tables are appropriate for children from preschool through elementary school. Academia school tables come in a number of sizes, styles and shapes. No matter what shape you choose, Educational Edge tables offer a great way to add a splash of color to a learning space. They will make any classroom more lively and inviting.

School desks aren't what they used to be. Although the classic four legged design with a book-box underneath the work surface is still available, Academia brings you a number of viable alternatives that are suited to the modern classroom. Their exclusive WoodStone desktops have the durability of hard plastic, yet they cost and weigh significantly less. For maximum strength and versatility, models are available with adjustable-height and U-braces for reinforcement.

Student chair desks should be considered when purchasing classroom furniture. They come in the same durable materials as school desks, but with the added convenience of attached seating. When a classroom is full of combo desks, teachers can be sure that students won't lean back in their chairs, and there are always enough chairs to match desks. Combo desks also guarantee that chair and desk heights match up.

For those who opt not to furnish a classroom with chair desks, school seating must be purchased so students have a place to sit in class. Academia offers some tough classic poly shell and hard plastic models as well as attractive new designs from the Inspiration Series. These sleek school chairs come in vibrant colors and feature 17 reinforcement ridges for a durable, flexible and supportive design.

Even your youngest learners deserve to learn in an environment with appropriately-sized school furniture. Academia activity tables and school chairs come in any height that you need, so you can have first-rate preschool furniture as well. When young learners have school chairs and activity tables that are just the right size, it is easier for them to develop proper posture and skills.

While the classroom is where students spend the bulk of their time at school, there are a number of other rooms that also require appropriate furniture. Whether they are learning how to utilize technology for educational purposes or harness their musical talents, your pupils need furniture that supports their endeavors. With the right pieces, you can channel the hard work of children and young adults toward future successes.

Computers are becoming increasingly important in the educational environment. Some functional computer tables can help support technology in the classroom, or furnish a contemporary computer lab. In order to ensure that your setup promotes ergonomic positioning, some appropriate computer chairs are necessary as well. With the right computer furniture, students can learn how to type correctly and hone their online research skills.

When furnishing a music room or band room, regular tables and chairs just won't cut it. Music furniture is specially designed to help student musicians play in a healthy position so they will learn how to hold their instruments and breathe correctly from the beginning. Academia's musician chairs support students as they play, whether in practices or performances.

Another room that requires special furniture is the science lab. Having appropriate lab furniture ensures the safety of students and teaches proper experimentation techniques. Academia offers a number of excellent lab stools that enable students to sit comfortably as they take notes or experiment at counter-height surfaces.

Creating an environment that is conducive to education and growth begins with appropriate layouts for learning. In order to make sure that students are properly supported with the physical tools that are needed for success, you want to give them the best school furniture out there. Academia school furniture provides the models you need to put students on the path to success as they gain critical knowledge that will be carried far into the future.
