Mrs. Royal from Dallas TX is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Organizing My Classroom: A Never-Ending Story

Help me give my students basic tools for classroom organization. The dry erase pockets are an essential component in our Math curriculum and allow teacher/student interaction. The binder pockets will hold a chapter book for each student.

My Students

Our neighborhood is just north of downtown Dallas. Because many of our students stay in our school from kindergarten to graduation, our campus has a family atmosphere. Our student body is made up of many English language learners and more than 70 percent qualify for free lunch. Reading is our highest priority. It is crucial for our students to build background knowledge and vocabulary in order to become fluent readers. For many English Language learners, this may only happen at school.

My Project

It just takes a few simple hooks, boxes or bins to turn chaos into serenity. My goal is to use these items to turn my classroom into an efficient, productive, student-managed space. Not only does that give students buy-in, but it also frees my time and energy for instruction. For example, I can place three magnetic hooks at student height on my whiteboard. This allows me to lead multiplication drills while two students distribute or collect lunch badges. This adds 10 minutes of instruction time to each day. The most wanted/needed item is the write and wipe pockets. We are using page protectors right now. The pockets hold our math template securely, erase more quickly, and provide a larger space for work. These pockets will increase engagement and directly contribute to better math work. We are most excited to have these over anything else! In summary, we want to organize for success!
