Great Readers Need Great Spots to Store Their Books!

Help me give my students a "seat sack," a place to store their chapter books on the back of their chairs.

My Project

We have a wonderful classroom library, but my fourth graders' chapter books are getting misplaced and damaged being stored inside their desks.

My students would love "seat sacks," soft bags that hang on the back of their chairs, to store their chapter books.

This will make finding books and keeping them in good condition much easier! My goal for fourth grade is for students to love reading, so I work hard to expand my library and keep it current. My students would love your help providing a safe place to keep their books!
