My Students

Since we are beginning a new school year, I have 23 new kiddos who will be entering my classroom next week. We come from a smaller community, so I have had the privilege of getting to know most of these kiddos in the halls and during recess. The students at our school come from a variety of socio-economical backgrounds with all different types of life experiences. Most students are energetic and ready to learn. They are a joy to be with.

My Project

My classroom has tables, rather than desks, for my students to work at. This is great for cooperative learning, collaboration, and team work.

However, this is not great for 2nd graders who need to organize their daily materials and workbooks.

I have tried several different ways of helping my students organize their materials, but they all resulted in a waste of learning time by students having to leave their tables to retrieve materials out of cubbies or from other locations around the room. Plus, having materials stored in different locations often result in materials being lost and misplaced.

It would be very helpful if the students had these drawer organizers at each table. My plan is to put one organizer at each table for students to put their materials/workbooks in. This would eliminate wasted learning time by students having their materials accessible and ready to go.
