Mrs. Carnes from El Mirage AZ is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Job Time, Job Time, Everybody Everywhere...

My students need classroom furniture in order to carry out certain jobs. This is why I am asking for two large pieces of furniture, a Wooden Adjustable Literature Organizer and a Double-Sided Book Display Stand.

My Students

"Is it time to do my job yet?" is a common question heard from eager faced 1st Graders at any point during the day. Monday mornings are especially exciting because that is when students change jobs. Sure not all classroom jobs are equally wished for and you're sure to see a few fingers crossed hoping it will bring them the good luck of having their name called first so they can snatch up the most coveted job of being the line leader or calendar helper. Although there is quite the difference between a mumbled, "I guess I'll be the floor inspector," to an excited, "You mean I get to lead the line for 5 whole days?" blurt, each job is still readily taken and carried out as it is made to be seen as a significant duty of being in a classroom community.

1st Grade students are enthusiastic helpers and take pride and excitement in doing a classroom job that help their teacher.

My Project

1st Graders absolutely love being given a classroom job as it provides them with a chance to be responsible, independent, and take ownership. Not only that but students jump at the chance of doing a job that helps out both their classmates and teacher. The Wooden Adjustable Literature Organizer will allow students to keep their classwork in one organized spot and allow them to help sort and deliver classroom "mail." The Double-Sided Book Display Stand will be used in our classroom library to display seasonal, thematic, and leveled books. Students also enjoy organizing and replacing books as a classroom job.

Try to imagine the ear-to-ear grins when 1st Graders are complimented on a job well done!
