I teach kindergartners who are eager to learn and be independent. My students come from many different backgrounds, including limited English, low income, middle income, and many different ethnicities. This diversity creates a need for me to provide a range of opportunities in academic skills as well as social skills.
In my class the children sit at hexagonal tables so they do not have anywhere to store their supplies. We lose so much instructional time passing out writing journals, story journals, pencils, name cards and more that I would like a new system that is more efficient and teaches my students responsibility. Also when my students complete their work they do not have a book handy to read as they wait.
Chair pockets would put these items in easy reach providing my students with the opportunity to get to work right away while I give individual instruction to those who need it. In addition a book in the pocket would provide them with a productive activity to do when they are finished with their work and waiting for further instructions.
Your help will ensure my students are not wasting their precious school minutes waiting for their writing journal to be passed out to them, or waiting in line to pick up their calendar, or going to their supply box for a pencil. With these chair pockets, my students will learn independence, responsibility and practice their reading skills when completing their work. These chair pockets will keep material at the fingertips of my kindergartners and make their time in school more productive than ever.
