Orderly Organization

My students need help in organizing their materials throughout the day using individual bins, shelves, paper rolls, and mailboxes.

My Students

Every morning, our students come into the classroom and unpack their belongings. With up to 34 children in the room, and all of the furniture and supplies that come with them, space is an issue, and so is the placement of those supplies. They lack physical space to put their materials for the day.

Our school is packed with students who are eager to learn, and who come to school each day excited for what is to come.

The group of children in our ICT class is diverse, from their ethnicities, to their needs, to their individual personalities. Each child is unique, and is treated as so. School is not only a place to learn for them, but a place to take ownership over things they may not be able to at home. It is a place for our students to feel safe, and to feel valued. They have their own supplies, their own books, and though limited, their own space. For many of them, this is different from their lives outside the school walls. While the first thing we do as a team is establish our rules, we also come up with ways to make our environment safe and ensure it runs smoothly. In our room, we are a team of individuals, banded together.

My Project

With these materials, our children will be able to store their materials on their desks, and place what needs to be taken home in their own personal mailboxes. They will have a space to call their own, where they can put their things and use them freely. This will allow them to have ownership over their materials and their own learning because they will have access throughout the day.

These materials will allow our classroom to be more organized and run more smoothly.

The children will be taught the routines and the proper way to use this new space, and give them the responsibility of how to manage their materials. It will also give them room to showcase their independence as the year progresses.
