I have one of four second grade classrooms at OPA elementary. My class is a combination of English Language Learners, Spanish Immersion students, and other wonderful inquisitive second graders. The age of students in second grade are my favorite to teach. They are full of questions, curiosity, and eagerness to learn.
Our school practices the Seven Habits of Happy Kids.
Those habits are reinforced daily in many situations in our classroom. My classroom is designed to develop students and prepare them academically according to their individual needs. With this strategy, I help them to become problem solvers of their own.
These organizers will allow the students to sit in common learning communities without unnecessary distractions or obstructions. Without these, many materials would be stored on their desk, cluttering their creative area. These storage devices will foster their organizational skills and keep materials at the ready.
We can use these to store many things including crayons, pens, pencils, folders, composition books and much more.
This will also keep personalization of the students items in order to foster a healthier environment while in the classroom. Preventing the spread of germs by sharing personal use items is a concern in all schools.
The brand I selected is reputable and they will be a durable asset for years in my classroom.
