My students range in age from 5 to 6 years old. Several of my students are the oldest child in their family, so school is a very new experience for them and their parents. They are very excited about school.
Many of my students come from families who are experiencing financial hardships and are living with other family members to get support.
More than half of my students come from families where both parents are working to make ends meet. Six of my students are receiving speech or special education services.
Chair back pockets will allow my students to keep writing materials organized and ready for immediate use. Precious class time will not be wasted by additional transitions to get writing supplies or passing out student work. Students just have to turn around and grab what is needed from the chair pocket.
I teach both morning and afternoon kindergarten sessions, so the different colored folders will help to organize and separate the student work in progress.
I have several writing projects planned for both classes. These folders will also have cover and back pages with alphabet models and sight words to provide support to students based on their needs.
