My Students

Our school is in Pittsburgh is in the inner city and a magnet school. Many of our students are socioeconomically disadvantaged and approximately 100% of the students at our school qualify for free or reduced lunch.

My students are 3rd and 4th graders.

Teaching two different grade levels makes it extremely hard to organize the students materials and space. Color coded organization will make it much easier to know which materials are for which grade level. An organized classroom makes procedures so much easier! These students deserve a organized, fun, and engaging environment to learn!

My Project

How can teachers help students get the most out of their school day? Organization! When we are organized, our students have materials at their fingertips and will not waste time finding what they need or cleaning up!

My students need organizational supplies to be independent.

Teaching two different grade levels it can be hard for students to know which materials are for their class. Color coding the students materials will make it easy for them to know which materials are for their grade level. As a teacher, I always taught only one grade so organizing a classroom for two grade levels is a bit challenging for me.

The materials requested will allow students to be more organized, which will promote independence within the classroom. The larger bins will be used to store the students differentiated small group games, The smaller bins will be used to house all of the students manipulatives.
