Please Help Us Get Seat Pockets!

My students need 15 chair pockets to help us organize our materials.

My Students

Do you remember ever having all of your materials in your desk disorganized? My students are just beginning to learn how to organize their materials.

I teach 22 first graders in a Title 1 school located in a high poverty and high crime area in Pennsylvania.

All of my students receive free breakfast and free lunch. At the present time only a small percentage of my students are at the proper reading and math level. Many of my students come from homes where English is not spoken.

My Project

I am requesting 15 seat pockets so that my students have a place to put and organize their materials. My students sit at tables and have no place to put their supplies and books. I want my students to learn how to keep their books, pencils and other materials together in an orderly fashion. I want them to waste as little time as possible in finding their materials.

Please help my students keep their materials together in an orderly fashion.

I want them to learn how to find their materials quickly. Please help to keep our room organized and beautiful.
