Mrs. Kulas from Jacksonville FL is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Seat Sacks are the Start of Classroom Organization!

Help me give my students new seat sacks. Seat sacks sit in the backs of their chairs so students have a place to put their everyday materials.

My Students

Every day is an exciting day in Kindergarten. Everything is new and exciting and even if you have a tummy ache , you do not want to go home. School is a happy place. Students learn social skills, letters, numbers, and much more everyday. School is a safe place filled with structure and love. Through the students eyes they are just having fun.

I work at a title one school which means there are large amounts of low income students who can't afford supplies.

Being title one, we do not get the funding we need to support all of the students needs, and many of the students come from low income homes.

The majority of the students that I get have never attended a VPK or pre-school. This is their first experience at school, and I want to make sure it is an experience that will make them want to look forward to coming everyday.

My Project

Seat sack save students time. It is amazing how long it takes to pass out books. However, if you teach Kindergarten you learn very quickly that something as simple as passing out books can take 5-10 minutes. That is a waste of time when learning could be happening. The loss of time then starts a chain of events which can include discipline problems. All of these issues can be resolved with seat sacks.

With each child having their own seat sack, we save time and teach organization skills.

Time is saved because students only need to turn around to grab their own books. Seat sacks also teach students organization by keeping them accountable for putting their own materials away and maintaining a clean environment.
