"Going Above and Beyond" is the expectation and the goal for everyone in my classroom, including the teacher! We strive every day, on every project, on every assignment, in our behavior and work habits to epitomize this statement. Working cooperatively is a huge part of this goal.
My classroom is filled each day with 24 fourth graders exhibiting a full range of reading and math abilities.
The classroom is full of activity as we fill every minute working toward academic excellence and trying to have fun at the same time. Our school is a small STEM magnet school drawing students from a large area so they come from many different cultures and socioeconomic levels.
Cubby storage will help us all be organized to learn in the classroom. Since we have transitioned to tables instead of desks, we now have the issue of what to do to keep our books and supplies organized and easy to manage. While the tables allow a great deal of collaboration and cooperative learning opportunities, they do not provide adequate storage for our materials.
Being organized is essential to success in the classroom and is a necessary life skill.
As we spend time working on planning and organizing to learn, having these cubby shelves will make this process so much simpler. They will hold our textbooks, folders, and composition books when they are not in use. Coupled with the one cubby shelf unit we currently have, these two units will provide an individual cubby for each student.
I look forward to having a more clean, pleasant, and organized classroom to keep my students always ready to learn and to prepare them for future success. Let's get organized to LEARN!
