My Students

My students are fun, loving, and a caring group of kids! They always try their best and can always put a smile on my face. I look forward to coming to school to see them every day.

This is my second year teaching first grade and I am still in the process of collecting materials for my classroom.

My students and I would love appreciate any resources to help organize the materials in our classroom to make learning easier and more accessible.

My Project

My students currently do not have a place to store the books that they are reading throughout the day. They would enjoy being able to store their books in their own book bins along with their other materials for Daily 5.

Students would be able to carry their book bins around with them during their rotations during daily 5 to keep their materials organized.

I think having this tool will get students much more engaged and excited in reading. It will also help students finish reading their books since they don't have to put their books away when time it up.
