Help me give my students mailboxes that won't break! We use mailboxes in the classroom to teach students necessary organization skills. Having their own mailbox gives them an opportunity to be responsible for their own things.
This school year I am lucky enough to teach 23 fantastic 1st graders. My students are eager to learn, and love to be actively engaged in the classroom. My goal is to help them be learners, creators, scientist, explorers, writers, and mathematicians. 1st grade is such an important year for these kids as they learn the skills they will need for future educational success. We are a Title I School which means we have a high poverty rate among our students, and our resources are low. My goal is to provide my class with all resources needed to help them grow and succeed.
We work hard at teaching out students to be independent and responsible members of society. In first grade, one of the ways we do this is by giving them their own mailbox where they are responsible for organizing their own papers and folders. The students love having this. We have had cardboard mailboxes, however, they are breaking terribly and it is time to replace them! We feel that these plastic mailboxes will be durable enough!
Our goal is to teach students to be responsible members of society.
By providing them opportunities in the classroom to practice this, we are setting them up for success.
