Mrs. Bjostad from Saint Paul MN is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Seat Bags!

My students need 20 seat sacks to store there communication boards and tools. They need a place to store them and a place to easily move them from one place to another.

I teach students in grades k-2 with Developmental Cognitive Disabilities. My students bring a variety of unique challenges to the classroom and it is my hope that I can give them the organizational tools they need to be successful in school.

My students use a variety of different communication tools such as: communication pictures, communication boards, and communication devices. These items can be bulky and they can get in the way during desk activities.

I need Seat Sacks in order for my students to keep their communication tools readily available and to keep the daily lessons moving without distractions. The students won't be side tracked if they don't have to move around the room in order to get their communication tools. Instruction time will not be lost during the time they will have to use to move their materials and then open their desks. This will benefit the students instruction time and allow for less wasted time waiting for students to get their communication tools out. They will learn much more with less time lost with their seat storage sack.

Your help will ensure that my students have their communication tools readily available throughout the day.
