I am a 3rd grade classroom teacher in a rural community school. I have taught 24 years in this school. I am in a self-contained classroom, so I teach all subject areas. My students are 9 and 10 years old.
The small classroom that I teach in was built in 1938. Storage is a daily issue for my students. They only have a small area to store their backpacks and very limit space in their desks for supplies.
I would like to help my students with this problem. I feel by providing them with an extra space on the backs on their chairs, I can help them be more organized. The students will feel better about their assignments, because the supplies they need will be at their fingertips.
Many of my students receive their school supplies from area churches at the beginning of the school year. These supplies are very important to them. When they misplace something it bothers them. My students realize that these supplies will not be replaced by their parents. I have tried many ways to help my students keep up with these items. I hope that these pockets will solve this problem.
