School in a Pool Organization

My Students

I will be teaching a fantastic group of kindergarteners this upcoming year.

School is going to look much different and I want to help give my kindergarteners a positive and exciting first impression of school.

When they arrive at kindergarten most students will have no prior knowledge of what school was like before the pandemic. I want to make sure their first experience is still engaging, full of fun, and that they want to keep coming back.

My Project

These clipboards and folders will greatly help my young students stay organized in their new socially distanced mini swimming pools. Yes, I mean real pools!

When I have students in my classroom we will follow all social distancing guidelines and my kindergarteners will be doing "School in a Pool" to help remind them to keep their supplies in their own space.

When this style of social distancing at school was tried out over the summer it was a success! However, to help make things run even more smoothly, additional organizational elements are needed to keep these new "desks" clean and using plastic products that can be easily wiped down to sanitize daily.

I am asking for plastic folders and clipboards to help teach my young students how to manage their new spaces.

This school year will be different than anyone ever could have imagined, but we will all get through it together and still make school a safe and positive place for our kids.
