Center Stage Build for Classroom

Recently, a friend and teacher from my run club approached me about a new project.  She shared that she had seen a recent entry table that I had listed for sale on FB Marketplace and asked if I could help her with a project for her classroom.

My mom taught special ed and I know teachers don’t get the kind of support they deserve so I was eager to help.

She shared with me an approach that many teachers are taking with their students.  It’s been discovered that speaking on stage in front of their classmates can be a valuable learning experience for elementary children. It helps them develop important communication skills such as clarity, articulation, and projection.

Additionally, it boosts their confidence and self-esteem as they learn to express themselves effectively. Speaking on stage also encourages children to organize their thoughts coherently, improving their cognitive abilities. Furthermore, it teaches them important life skills such as public speaking, which can be beneficial in various aspects of their future personal and professional lives.

Super cool right?

So — I went through my scrap piles and was able to build this entirely from salvaged wood that I already had.  The only thing I had to run to Lowe’s for was a box of nails as I ran out towards the end of the project.

She loved it and the kids love it too.  It was a fun build and something I’m happy I could help with.

Thank you to my friend Amanda.  Keep up the awesome work.
