Being in a Title I urban school, setting up a classroom is a challenging task. Notes are sent home to parents to request school supplies, but they can only do so much. Likewise, teachers reach into their own pockets, that are only so deep, to supplement (or fully supply) all learning adventures.
Our students are eager to do their best with every opportunity given to them, but having the right tools to make it happen is not easy.
Whether it is daily supplies, or the classroom furniture to support learning, we as teachers need to create the best learning opportunities as frequently as possible.
Having access to an organized space will help make learning a bit easier. It will foster the value of being responsible for their own materials, which is an important skill that they will carry with them through their school careers. It will also encourage the students to take ownership of their classroom, and help keep it neat and clean.
Everything will have a place, and every place will have a thing.
Desk spaces will be free of clutter and papers spilling out. The organized work environment will encourage students to stay focused on the task at hand, and they'll be able to find what they need, when they need it, whether in small group or working independently somewhere in the room.
The Literacy organizer will help us keep track of papers for parent review. The 3-tiered shelves will help us store unused materials for a clear workspace.
