Equipping future learning environments

In looking ahead to future purchases, classroom furniture is always on the horizon.  Those types of purchases are best selected to carry out a particular style of overall classroom instruction and to create a rich learning environment.  One of my colleagues, sent the following summary of their journey in equipping their learning spaces.  I thought you might find it valuable as we look to the future.
Over the last few years, we have adopted new mobile furniture in our Lower School Classrooms (K through 4th grade). We are scheduled to purchase for the last few classrooms next year. Here is a blog post written by one of our teachers that explains the move:
