My students need classroom mailboxes in order to easily organize papers to send home.
Help my students organize their papers. I currently use hanging file folders in a milk crate as student mailboxes. These are difficult for the students to use and papers often get misfiled. I would like easy to use mailboxes so students could independently file the papers.
I work in a Title 1 Charter school in Colorful Colorado.
I have many low-income students, and students who are still learning English. They are extremely caring children, and they often seek ways to help me. Many of them love having a job in the classroom. For some it makes them feel needed, special, responsible, and successful.
Classroom mailboxes would help ensure that papers go home to the correct student, and that all the parents get important notes and papers. Students will take turns filing papers as one of my classroom jobs. That will help teach them responsibility and independence.
An organized classroom helps create a pleasant learning environment, while allowing me more time to focus on instruction.
Classroom jobs help teach the students responsibility, and help create a cohesive classroom community. That helps create a safe and caring environment, which promotes student achievement and learning. Overall, the mailboxes will make my classroom a little nicer for my students.
