HELP!!! My students' Desks Are Throwing Up!

My Students

As I think back to when I was a 6 year-old, the thought of organization was the last thing from my mind... Toys, games, and candy were the only thing I thought about. Now 20 years later, I have come to realize that nothing has changed... my students need some major help with their organization!!!

I am honestly convinced that I have the most amazing first grade class in the world.

They are smart, witty, well behaved (at times), and very enthusiastic about learning... However, there is one thing I have noticed...They are VERY disorganized. In our first grade class, the students have desks in which they can put their supplies and books in the cubby holes. Many would think that this is convenient..but in reality, it is not. Their desks are like black holes, they will put something in it and it will never be seen again!

My Project

With all joking aside, as a first year teacher, organization has become one of the most important aspects of maintaining a stable and successful learning environment. One thing that I have noticed is that there has been so much wasted instructional time in my classroom due to the disorganization of my students' desks. They are constantly searching for things in their desks and not being able to find important papers, supplies, and books that are essential for their learning. I am requesting that each of my students get their very own chair organizer. These organizers will hang on the back of the chair and have room for their supplies and books. There are pockets on them for each essential supply needed for a student. They are very accessible to the students and do not leave much room for clutter. It is a way to help teach my students organizational skills that will be VERY important in the intermediate grades.

In addition to the chair organizers, I am also requesting some organizational pocket charts for the classroom.

These are supplies that will help make my classroom run more smoothly and allow for my students to have a more stable and functional learning environment. My goal is to help my students and my classroom by getting ORGANIZED. Thank you so much in advance to any donor who gives money to fund this project. My kids will be SO excited to get their very own chair organizers.
