Spring break may sound like an odd time to redecorate your classroom, but it is actually a great time. The prices are lower because of the discounts on last fall’s furniture and students can give their feedback after they come back to class. In a sense, you get a test run on your decorating decisions before next year. The question is how to decorate and what to consider when doing so. Here are some tips.
Bright colors and child-friendly sizing make the Jonti-Craft Berries Plastic Chairs with Powder-Coated Legs or Chrome Legs a great choice for a classroom or preschool use. The frame is constructed of heavy-gauge steel. The powder-coated legs match the color of the easy-to-clean polypropylene seat or the chrome legs offer a bit of polish. The polypropylene material prevents annoying static electricity and has cutouts for easy grip. Non-exposed rivets prevent snags to keep children more comfortable as they sit. Nylon glides on the base of the legs reduce noise when sliding the chair.
Available in five colors, these chairs match Jonti-Craft’s Rainbow Accents® furniture to create a coordinated room. Choose from 10-, 12-, 14-, 16- and 18-inch seat size options to suit all ages. These chairs are backed by a five-year manufacturer’s warranty.
What’s missing in this picture? How about the Rainbow Accents Activity Tables by Jonti-Craft that match the Berries Chairs perfectly. The Rainbow Accents Kids Activity Table is perfect for the classroom or preschool playroom. Available in traditional Rectangle and Round sizes or fun shapes like Flower shaped, Clover Shaped, Kidney shaped or Trapezoid shaped. Finished in a pebbled gray laminate with your color choice of edgebanding that match all of the Rainbow Accent trimed furniture by Jonti-Craft. Includes extra-safe dual-screw leg adjustability system and nylon-based swivel glides. Legs can adjust in height from preschool 15 to 24 inches or standard 24 to 31 inches. Legs mount quickly for minimal assembly.

Last week, the house approved the 21st Century Green High-Performing , H.R. 3021, legislation to make schools greener, and improve conditions for those with environmentally linked health problems. The bill passed by a vote of 250-164. This bill ensures that 90 percent of the funds allocated will be directed towards the purchase of greener furniture, such as ActGreenguard certified furniture. Greenguard is rapidly becoming the standard in "green school" furniture, with many manufacturers providing a wide selection of Greenguard certified chairs, school desks, activity tables, and more. As the green segment of school and church furniture continues to grow, companies such as Worthington Direct strives to expand their selection of green furniture for environmentally and health conscious schools.
