Ms. Benson from Kinston NC is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Organized for Success!

Help me give my students the organizational skills they need to be successful in school and later in life with paper trays that I will use throughout the day and with my 8 classes and I need a way to separate their materials.

My Students

My students are each unique, with their own personalities and their own style of learning. I have 8 classes of students who require additional assistance in certain subjects.

My students try their hardest and need all the resources they can get to be successful.

I love all my students and their distinct personalities. No two children are the same.

These students are considered resource students but are still eager to learn and try their best on their assignments in and out of my room.

My Project

I teach 8 classes during the day and each class has its own materials. These paper trays will provide the students with a way to keep their items organized and together so we do no waste class time locating materials. My classes share the same desk and some students keep their books for class in the desk but they then get mixed in with the other classes.

My students need a way to be organized so they can focus and be successful.

The bins are color-coded to match each different class to help me and them stay organized and ready for class.
