Mailboxes for Ms. M's Munchkins

My students need an organizer to keep their completed work, take-home assignments, and messages for parents.

My Students

Working at a Title I school is my favorite challenge as a teacher. Title I status is given to public schools of low income and high poverty demographics.

The children who step into my classroom come from a variety of backgrounds, nations, and experiences.

Nearly 70% of our students speak a different language at home and really must strive each day to learn English as well as the state-standardized curriculum. This can prove difficult, but our kids (and staff!) are definitely up to the challenge.

Reaching each child and helping them achieve their potential is difficult, no doubt, but the growth I see is incredibly rewarding.

My Project

Coaching students in organizational skills is essential for my little munchkins. This skill will serve them throughout their education and professional careers.

Mailboxes for my students will help aid them in staying organized and being responsible for their completed work.

Each student will be expected to check his/her mailbox daily to find returned assignments, missed work from absences, and messages to take home to parents. These boxes will also serve as a way to strengthen school to home communication as students can deliver notes back to me at the beginning of the day.

Please help Ms. Miller's munchkins to make steps toward building responsible organizational skills in the classroom!
