Hooray! This project is fully funded
Are amazing! We have an amazing classroom but no where to put belongings once we sit down. Seat sacks will help all of us!
These students deserve the best because they are the best.
I am blessed and honored to be their teacher. They work so hard and give their all every day. Those days where you feel defeated, as we all feel at times, are saved by hugs and words that can melt any heart. Most importantly, they spread kindness wherever they go. It is something we work on every day. These kids are truly something special in that they want to pay it forward as much as they can. Teaching involves more than being in the classroom. We work hard to "be the nice kid" because being kind is the right thing to do. We are a very busy classroom and we never sit still. We are constantly reading and writing, but as you can imagine, things get messy very quickly. This is where we could use your help. I can just see their faces and expressions right now if they walked into the classroom with seat sacks on their chairs!
Hello everyone. First of all, thank you for taking time out of your busy day to help our classroom. As you know, staying organized is a key to success and we need help. We have huge tables for our desks with no storage. As you can imagine, 25 plus kids using tables leads to craziness.
We are tripping over everything laying all over the floor and under seats.
We need seat sacks! Needless to say, because there is no storage for the students to put their things at their seats, the students and I have tripped over belongings numerous times. If you are anything like me, trying to simplify things can be challenging if you do not have the means to do so.
I am seeking help to buy seat sacks for the students. One, it keeps the room safe and clean. Two, no one is tripping over belongings. Three, it helps to keep things exactly where they need to be. We are changing our curriculum and it will be extremely literacy based. I have personally bought over 1,000 books on my own throughout the years. When students need to put things to the side, books are being torn and stepped on. Their journals that they take so much pride in are being ripped apart. If we had these seat sacks, everything that they need will be right there at their seat. No more getting up 20 times a day to get a book, or paper, or their folders. They have said time and time again, "I wish we had a place to put my stuff."
We just need to simplify and this would be such an amazing start to our new classroom community. Thank you!
