Mrs. Gainey from Aiken SC is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Organized and Ready

My students need caddies because I buy supplies for them, but I need an organized and time efficient means to distribute these items when needed.

My Students

My fifth graders are a diverse group of students. They are hard workers, and they bring me joy everyday! Most of them come to school ready to be given the opportunity to make themselves better than they were the day before. Their drive inspires me. We are a Title I school, which means we depend on financial assistance to aid our students in becoming the best they can be. It is because of the needs of my students that I chose to create this project.

My Project

Many of my students often arrive at school without proper supplies. I provide the supplies for them, however I need an organized way in which to keep these items, so when it is time to pass them out for the students to use, I can do so in a quick and efficient manner. Several students will share one of these caddies. This will keep the items organized and prevent students from having to dig through boxes of colored pencils to find the ones they need, searching through piles of markers to find specific colors, and to make the glue sticks more easily accessible.
