My Students

My classroom is full of beautiful kindergartners from mostly low-income households. They are the best huggers you will ever meet. When one of them gets upset or hurt, they all feel it. They surround that student with love. They cannot even think about continuing a lesson when one of our friends is hurting.

My students are sweet, feisty, and brilliant.

They are sweet; they don't have much to give, so they what they can: their love and their artwork. They are feisty; they stick up for themselves and others. They are brilliant; they teach me new things every day. I am often blown away by the way their minds work- thinking things I never would have thought.

My Project

We have a community environment with long tables which is great for working and learning together. However, this set up makes it hard to keep supplies organized and out of the way. Right now we have big baskets at the end of each of the tables to keep all of their supplies together. These baskets often get in the way when the students are working on bigger projects together.

Seat sacks would make a huge difference in our classroom.

My students would love to have the supply baskets out of the way all of the time. Their items would be out of the way while still within reach.
