Getting Organized

My students need chair pockets to help them keep their materials organized and easily accessible.

My Students

It takes time to develop stories, ideas, dreams, and finished products. Help my students take pride in their work by having a place of their own to store their 'works in progress.'

Ross Elementary School is a Title I school in Tennessee.

Several of the students in my class speak English as their second language. They are very smart and eager to learn. We are learning to be authors and illustrators as well as collaborate with our peers. My hope is for my students to leave Kindergarten having the confidence to believe in their dreams.

My Project

My students will use these chair pockets to store their supplies. It is important for them to learn that writers always have more to write, readers always have more to read, and learners are always learning. This will give them a place to keep their unfinished work, their books to read, and their learning tools.

These materials will be used for years.

Kindergarten is an important time for children to learn how to be independent. This will impact several Kindergarten children learning to take responsibility for their actions and their work.
