My students need 11 seat organizers for keeping academic materials organized.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
We need an opportunity to practice organization skills that will help us in every and any area of life!
My students are from a Title I school, of 66% low socioeconomic status, and 73% minority.
The children attend a public school and do not have their own desks. My students often do not have the resources at home to even have their own personal 'space' or desk.
These seat organizers dramatically improve not only the efficiency (time on task!) and organization of students and the classroom academic environment, but also contribute a huge amount to many students' self-esteem. When they practice keeping track of their academic work and belongings, they feel proud and ready to learn. The first project we will work on is teaching the children how to keep their notebooks organized in a way that the pages won't get torn and the books are easy to access for quick transitions. Next students will get a folder for independent work in case there are interruptions to instruction and they have a minute of down time, increasing time on task and diminishing potential off task behavior. Students have told me they truly love keeping belonging organized and even do so for spaces at home!
In the past I have bought or made such seat organizers and I know they work.
Students love them and they dramatically help the class. Because we have new students and the old ones have broken, the students desperately need more! Please help! Thank you!
