Ms. Bower from Los Angeles CA is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

More Space For More Work!

My students need 20 small organization pockets that hang on the backs of their chairs to create more work space at their cluttered tables!

All workers in any profession require certain tools to get their jobs done. My first graders are no exception. These kids work extremely hard on reading, writing, math, science, social studies, language, spelling, speaking, listening, and so much more! Most of this hard work happens at small, circular tables that seat four students per team.

If each learning assignment requires its own set of special tools, and my students work through nearly ten learning jobs per day, imagine the number of tools and resources cluttering the little tables! The mess can be unbearable at times, and depending on the number of pages or size of poster board, I often find my students crawling along the floor with their pile of supplies searching for space.

I've visited other classrooms and taken note of how fellow teachers have approached this dilemma... Pocket organizers that hang on the backs of the students' chairs! These pockets allow the students to clear their tables of pencils, erasers, workbooks, folders, scissors, glue and all the other tools they need to do their work. These chair pockets will help make space for them to do their work comfortably with their table-mates.

With your donation, I would like to purchase 20 chair pockets to hang on the backs of each student's chair. You will help clear our minds by clearing our learning spaces! Organization is key, and these resources will help set the foundation for organized thinking and creative work.
