Binders for Basic Organization

My students need “zipper binders” to help them stay organized in all classes.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Describing my students isn't an easy task. Many would say that they are inspirational, creative and hard-working. They are all unique, unique in their interests, their learning, their abilities and so much more. What they all have in common is their desire to learn each day despite difficulties that they encounter.

Our classroom is amazing because we understand that everyone learns at their own pace, and needs a variety of resources to meet their unique needs.

As the teacher, I pride myself on making sure my students are always engaged, motivated and inspired to create their own learning.

My Project

Organization is the key to success! My middle schoolers need help learning basic organization, and we’ve found that using zipper binders is the easiest way to help assist them in this mission!

Staying organized and learning creative ways to organize yourself is a great way to foster independence and teach students success in school!

With so many different classes, materials, and personal belongings, many middle schoolers struggle to keep themselves “put together” throughout the day. Having a portable system for organization will be key to their continued success in middle school. These binders will solve this problem and be so very helpful!
