Organization Never Looked So Good!

Help me give my students chair buddies to organize their classroom folders, notebooks, and supplies in the midst of their busy class schedules.

My Students

Help give the gift of organization to my enthusiastic third graders. My third graders are trying so hard to gain more independence involving day to day tasks. Third grade is a huge transition for my students. Our students switch classes for the 1st time in third grade. This can be a very challenging task for some students. We’d like to allow each student to have their own seat sack within the classroom to encourage them to build lifelong organizational skills. Please consider donating to these inspiring, hard-working students.

My Project

My students lose time during the start of class looking for their appropriate materials. Due to the switching of classes, they are losing folders, notebooks, and assigned classwork in the midst of transitioning. Some students are switching to 3 out of the 4 third grade teachers in a day. So the organization is crucial for these kiddos to be successful in their day to day learning. I’ve used seat sacks in the past for my struggling learners. I have witnessed how these organizational aids help build confidence for students that are so used to losing their supplies because they haven’t had guidance on how to manage their materials. I believe all my students could benefit from these seat sacks.
