- allows movement for students
- lots of colors/style
- the space (tough to store!)
- constant movement can be distracting
*tip* Look for Lap Desks with pencil “grooves” or attachments for writing utensils or a stylus. SUPER helpful!
- lightweight to carry from place to place
- automatically sets up a boundary/space for the student (I find individual work time that students like this)
- odd shape (not stackable)
- quality varies with price – some last longer than others
- easy to store!
- carrying straps
- multiple seating positions
- take up very little space!
- price! Unfortunately padded ones are on the higher end unless you have younger students who can use Scoop Rockers (see below!)
I know you read that and thought NO WAY but these kind definitely have perks! I personally use these for company in my own house and love how they fold up and store away!
- easy to store!
- perfect for little bodies (but still hold weight)
- not really sure…I love this as an option for a classroom and how it doesn’t look traditional “fold up chair style”
Such a lifesaver! I love these metal (always metal!) stools for their sturdiness and ability to work in any area!
- comes in packs
- great value
- sturdy construction (metal versions!)
- easy to store/stack
- some colors are more expensive than others
