I have 30 of the most tenacious and sagacious first graders in the world. My students come from all over the city; some are even from different parts of the world. They are diverse, tolerant and patient with one another. For this reason, I have elected "1st grade college-bound class of great character" as our title for this school year.
As teachers, we assume our students know how to organize their instructional materials. Well, we are wrong. We have to teach, monitor, assess and reteach those things we want our students to learn and internalize. The internalization comes with daily practice and reinforcement. Organization is a life-long skill. Students are never too young to be trained on this skill.
I want my students to have pocket storage behind their chairs to facilitate the organization process.
It is a proven fact, students who are organized and prepared for the instructional day are more apt to internalize the instruction. Along with the pocket chair storage, I will teach my students to sharpen their pencils before leaving school each afternoon. My students will end their day organized and prepared for the next day's instruction.
Organization is a life-long skill that students will need to be successful in the workplace. Every aspect of life is affected by being organized. I don't want my students to wait until college to figure out how to organize their instructional materials like I did.
