Chair Buddies

My students need Seat Sacks as the size of their desk does not accommodate the books and materials needed for everyday use.

My Students

Being a teacher in a low-income district gives me some advantages and a lot of disadvantages. Students are faced with numerous challenges every day in and out of school. I want to make their learning experience as meaningful and fun as possible.

My students are very active and are curious about everything around them.

They love math and using manipulatives to help them solve problems. They enjoy technology, especially educational interactive games. Most students do not have access to a computer at home so they enjoy the time in school.

I want my students to thrive and get the best education possible even though they are at a disadvantage. My students all deserve a quality education.

My Project

A donation of seat sacks would be beneficial in organizational skills. The students desks are too small and do not fit all of their given materials.

My students have been sitting on top of stacks of books because they do not fit inside of their desks.

We all know that is not safe! Working in a district with big class sizes, extra space for their books and belongings are hard to come by. On each of the seat sacks there are many pockets allowing the students to place their pencils, books, folders, and ActiveExrpressions in it. This resource would be useful to my students!
