My students need desk organizers, subject folders, colored card stock, and an updated world map.
"It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge," said Albert Einstein, and my students apply this quote in my classroom and dream big every day.
I serve 23 amazing third grade students in the Los Angeles Unified School District.
Our school is a small neighborhood public school. Most students live in the community around the school. My students love to learn and learn best when they are actively engaged.
As many of you know classroom sizes continue to grow year after year. The lack of space makes it increasingly difficult for teachers and students to thrive in this learning environment. Desks are extremely small and outdated, and therefore students are unable to store and organize all their needed textbooks and materials. This is not conducive for a good learning environment. A personalized and organized space will allow students to efficiently complete assignments and stay focused.
Since I know that we may never see new modern desk at my school, I chose these chair organizers to help the kids in my class store their notebooks and other school essentials.
I have had to downsize this year by taking a textbook out because it would not fit in their desk, also students have had to store their library books on top of their desks which decreases their learning space even further.
