As a teacher in a low-income, high poverty school district, I recognize that my students are faced with challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
I have the most incredible group of students this year.
They walk into my classroom every day full of life, ready to learn and excited for what is in store for them that day. They are a unique group that ranges from the overly exuberant to the shy and sweet.
My students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds with over eighty percent receiving free or reduced-price lunches. They look forward to reading daily and need a safe, yet easily accessible place to store their books. They know I believe in them and they can do anything.
Zip lock bags do not provide sufficient storage nor protection for our classroom books. My students will be able to store books with the seat sacks, and fit other necessary materials in their desks. My students look forward to reading time and would benefit from an easily accessible place to store them.
My students are receiving the best foundation we can give them and with help, we can give them even more!
Just think, students will be able to keep more books in their seat sack, which will prevent students from having to exchange their books on a bi-weekly basis.
