My Students

"Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up." A.A. Milne It is essential for kindergarteners to have their items organized and easily accessible.

I teach 22, energetic kindergarteners who love to learn.

It is important to teach early organizational skills. By doing so, we will create life long learners. With the new Common Core strands, the amount of paper has increased tremendously, making it difficult for kindergarteners to keep their materials and papers in order.

My Project

The organizing cart will allow me to organize my students' data in one place. I will be able to use the paper trays in the cart to organize my materials for my small groups. The students will be able to quickly locate needed materials for small group by using the organizing cart. The cart will also be mobile so that I can take my student data with me to grade level meetings and other classrooms as we work with other classes. The organizing stool will provide a place for students to sit for reading time as well as a place to store our electronic vocabulary reader. The stool will keep the electronic player safe and organized.

Your donations will play a big part in helping to organize my classroom, as well as teaching my students how to be organized.

They will be able to access and easily use their materials when needed. Your donations will also allow me to keep my student data better organized so that I can spend less time looking for items and more time working with the students.
