Ms. Rickey from Baldwin City KS is requesting Flexible Seating through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Organizing Our Classroom

Help me give my students an important organization tool that will aide them in being successful in the classroom! Students will easily be able to access all of their supplies right from their seats.

My Students

I am a kindergarten teacher in a small community in Kansas. Our school is a Title I primary school that houses preschool through second grade. Every morning, I am excited to see my 20 students come in with big smiles and active minds.

Students come into the room each day ready for something fun, new, and exciting.

My students are curious, busy-bodied, and fun-loving individuals. They love to learn and I love to teach them! Using a variety of different styles, resources, and tools, I am able to create a learning environment that is suitable for each of my wonderfully unique students.

My students thrive using real-life scenarios and hands-on tools. When they walk in our classroom, they know they are no longer simply "students", they are scientists, mathematicians, writers, readers, engineers, and beyond.

My Project

These seat pockets will increase instructional time in our classroom by making each student's materials easily accessible. These materials will also allow for students to practice their organizational skills as well as time management skills.

Cutting out transition times to fetch supplies around the classroom will allow students to have more learning time in every subject!

Having all of our supplies, including pencils, crayons, markers, notebooks, clipboards, and folders in one handy spot will help make our day run smooth and seamless.

The seat pockets are also very durable and will be able to help students in my classroom this year, and for years to come!
