My students need plastic folders, binders and an accordion file to help keep themselves and their work organized.
How much time to do you spend looking for that ONE piece of paper? You know, the one you HAVE to have for that project/presentation? Imagine not having access to binders or strong folders to help you get organized.
I currently teach in the largest district in the state.
All of my students qualify for free or reduced lunch. Times are tough. My students all have some sort of cognitive disability. They work very hard to learn, but often get their papers and projects mixed up and are unable to unscramble it in time to turn in. We have paper folders in our classroom, but they fall apart easily. My students are eager to learn, and we would save a lot of time by just being a little bit more organized.
My students currently keep a portfolio demonstrating their work throughout the year. They also keep folders to maintain their work. Unfortunately, many of the folders they bring in are thin and fall apart frequently. We are constantly replacing torn and tattered folders. My students spend so much time on their work, it is sad that it is lost because of poor quality supplies. We are asking for plastic folders that will hold up throughout the year and binders to help store our work. The accordion file will act as a place to store work samples in a central place, so that when they are deciding what to put in their portfolios, it is all at their finger tips. These are all important life skills to learn, and these basic skills could set them up for much success.
Our students need a lot of support to get through the day.
Simple things like folders and binders that aid in organization shouldn't be things that hold them back. We ask for your generosity for these basic supplies.
