My district is growing. Administration recognizes that smaller class size maximizes learning. My classroom was added this year, in an effort to reduce class size for this purpose! Our modular classroom has no storage, making access to learning materials cumbersome for my students. There are no built-ins, cabinets, or closets. The square footage is much smaller than traditional classrooms. Many materials are in crates under and behind tables. Many of my teaching materials are housed at home, in my garage, as I have no room for them in the classroom. I currently have one cabinet in the classroom for materials, and it's full. I have added a cubby storage unit with storage bins to store manipulatives such as tangrams, pattern blocks, fraction bars, and dice, as well as art supplies such as paint, scissors, and glue. I have also added three tall metal bookcases on wheels and one shorter metal bookcase on wheels. These shelves would store binders of teaching material, mentor texts for reading lessons, data binders for student data collection and growth. These shelves would make learning materials accessible and maximize our space! I also included a class set of basic black one-inch binders for the storage of students data and growth to share with parents at conferences, as well as to allow students the ability to show responsible for their progress. In the coming years, I will be fortunate to move into the school building, following a major construction project. The timeline for teaching and learning in the modular is unknown, and these materials would maximize our experience in the modular, as well as provide wonderful organization opportunities once the classroom moves into the building. I would be ever so grateful.
