Ms. Vanni from Saratoga CA is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Kindergarteners are Learning Organizational Skills

My students need help staying organized, focused, and not losing any instructional minutes, by having their materials ready to go in pockets on the back of their seats!

My Students

The students in my class are curious, enthusiastic 5-6 year olds who come from a variety of backgrounds and speak a total of five different languages at home. I integrate STEAM into our daily curriculum and most information is synthesized for my students through an artistic or creative final project.

My Kindergartners are eager learners, who love hands-on projects and working with technology.

They are highly engaged in their learning and raise their hands enthusiastically to participate in class. They work together as a team; encouraging each other and working together to solve problems.

My Project

My students have many things they are responsible for in our classroom, from writing tools to scissors to a variety of workbooks. Because students in kindergarten do not have desks at our school, but share a communal table, they have no place to store their materials. Various materials are stored in different places around the classroom.

We waste valuable instructional minutes and risk losing focus by leaving our tables to collect supplies from around the classroom.

Having easy access to our supplies in pockets on the backs of seats will help us stay focused and provide us with more time for learning. Seat pockets will help students learn responsibility and organization of their personal items.
