Ms. Rieder from Kissimmee FL is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Organization is Key in 5th

My students need help organizing materials. By color coding papers in their study notebooks, it is easier for my students to locate information when working on assignments. Colored pencils help to add on to notes effectively.

My Students

My students look forward to coming to school each morning. They want to do their best and learn as much as possible. Many of these students come to school to escape what they are seeing at home. Whether it is simply to avoid boredom or to get to a safe place, school is where they want to be. My goal is to make my classroom an even more inviting place for my children.

My students are getting ready to transition to middle school.

5th grade is the perfect opportunity for them to learn the organizational skills needed to be successful in middle school and beyond. They are still eager to learn, as they discover more and more about themselves.

My school receives 100% free lunch and breakfast. We strive to provide them with more than just an education. We want them to feel special and be a part of the community.

My Project

With how much work 5th graders encounter weekly, it is easy to see how they can get lost in the shuffle. Many of my students hold great potential in reading and writing, but they need help organizing their learning.

Students need to be able to look back in their notebooks to efficiently recall the info taught in class.

By using colored paper, students can quickly turn to the pages they need. Colored pencils allow them to see how their thinking changes as they add on to their notes and assignments. By using these simple organization tricks, my students will be set up for their best school year yet.

These simple organization techniques will benefit both my ESE (Exceptional Education/Learning Support) and general education students.
