Teaching students in the 21st century has become a challenge. As we know, students have many individual needs. It is necessary to motivate students to work, pay attention, and learn in the traditional classroom setting. In fact, many students have increased motivation when it comes to additional materials. In my school district in Colorado, the majority of students are from military families. However, our budget for the district is lower than usual during these tough economic times. Unfortunately, I am unable to personally provide all of the equipment I believe would benefit my students. Motivation is key. My students love being able to have additional materials in their learning. My students will be more likely to be engaged in the task at hand and truly learn to the best of their abilities. Additional materials will provide students with opportunities they don't normally have.
New to flexible seating this year, my students love having the ability to choose their spot in the classroom. However, the locations to put their materials have been less than ideal. Having a place to store our community supplies would be ideal.
This storage cart allows supplies to be transported easily around the room to the location that we will need them!
Ideally, one location to hold our items is ideal. This bin storage solution will provide students with a single piece of furniture to keep all their work-related items in one location, yet it can travel if this is in a different location in the room depending on the activity. Students will know exactly where to store and find their materials in one central location.
