My Students

Have you ever heard a child say "I can't find my journal!" or "I don't know where my book is?" These are scenarios that play out all too often in many classrooms. Space is always an issue in our classrooms, and as teachers, we try to make use of every inch of space for learning.

During the course of the school day, my students use a wide variety of materials, often changing activities and materials frequently.

To help my students become readers, we use a lot of concrete manipulatives to help make connections to the letter names and sounds. Being able to touch, manipulate, and sort concrete objects and pictures helps to develop this skill for my students. Learning by doing involves my students in a total learning experience which enhances their ability to think critically. But, where can we store all of the materials we need to help us be better learners? It is very important that our classroom be arranged to promote efficient learning.

My Project

My students need three Storage Tray Mobile Organizers to store and reach the materials they need to be learners. The storage bins I am requesting will help my students be better prepared to become learners. These resources will help organize our materials and make learning more accessible for all of my students. They will be able to reach their materials and have a place to keep them that makes sense. Students will be up and doing literacy activities, instead of wasting valuable learning time trying to find the materials they need to learn.

Your support will give my students a chance to be independent learners.

They will be able to find and put away materials themselves. The learning materials will be stored in consistent places in the classroom, in low shelving units, and in containers that my students will be able to see inside and handle.
