Mrs. Hargrave from Indianapolis IN is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need storage for the items they keep at their tables. In kindergarten they do not have desks, it has been quite difficult for them to keep track of the supplies they need daily.
My students are a group of children who are multifaceted in the most innocent ways possible. They are amazing readers, and they are great story tellers. Some draw amazing pictures, some are always lending a helping and some have special needs. It amazes me the conversations that I overhear about movies, what happens at home, and even the usual conversation about who can run faster.
Each day I go into work hoping to inspire my students and help them understand the importance of education.
Our classroom is at a Title I school in Indiana. Many of my students have difficult situations going on at home. Most have also experienced some sort of trauma in their short lives. Either they are the oldest and are expected to get their younger siblings ready for school, they have seen a parent being arrested or they have witnessed domestic violence. There are so many stressors outside of school that affect their learning inside of school.
Every day I try to teach my students something that they can use in real life to help them through whatever may be going on in their lives.
Many of my students do not have their own space at home. I have seen an slight increase in situations I have to help diffuse with students feeling like others are taking or touching their items. In a push to motivate students and keep the peace, I decided that chair pockets would be a great way to not only address this issue but also to solve our storage woes in the classroom. Students will be able to keep items like their writing folders, math workbooks and read to self books right on their chairs, while also navigating around situations that may bring up conflict.
Sharing space and cultivating the skill of responsibility in young children is a goal that everyone in my classroom practices.
Allowing students to have a space that they are responsible for is key addressing responsibility.
Please help me and my students organize and motivate to end the year off right!
