My Students

The learners in my school come from a wide variety of backgrounds and needs. My class has a large number of students with disabilities and special needs including ESL, speech, occupational therapy, and physical therapy. These students along with our regular education students who perform at or above grade level create a unique learning environment.

My students benefit from an abundance of books to choose from in an organized classroom.

They love having easy access to their favorite titles and being able to put their own materials away;

My Project

These book bins will provide an easy to manage method for my students to choose new books as well as put their own books away. These bins will help maintain an organized space for my little book worms to select books they are interested in. The single color bins will provide uniformity and a clean look to the classroom which is always filled with so many distractions.

My little learners need to be capable of choosing new books and cleaning up independently to fit frequent changes into our busy schedule.

These bins provide an easy way to maintain this method.
