My students are an awesome group of fifth-graders living in a disadvantaged, low-income community. They often go without many comforts and even necessities due to poor financial situation.
What an engaged, enthusiastic bunch they are!
They are eager to learn about anything, which excites us as teachers, as well. And so it goes, the wonderful circle of education life. I can't wait to share experiences with them and watch them light up as we journey happily together through this school year.
Organization?? Not the strong suit of most children. Colorful storage bins that can be labeled? Yes, please! Success is ours.
Children are not inherently organized.
They need help-as do many adults. These organizing systems will enable them to keep supplies and papers neat and organized. Work can be ready and easily accessible for them to "grab and go". Binders can be available for guided reading groups with searching. And directions on where and how to hand in tests or written work will not need to be repeated.
It's amazing how greatly these "little" things-organization, neatness, systems-can positively impact a classroom and increase its productivity.
