Ms. Sommers from Falls Church VA is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Seat Sacks

My students need seat sacks to hold the materials that we use on a daily basis. We use science notebooks, math notebooks, reading folders, crayons, etc. These items could remain in their seat sacks until used.

My Students

The student population at my school has a very diverse culture, representing over 39 different countries. In my class of 24 students alone (last year), we represent 12 different countries. 30% of the school population are English Language Learners. 33% receive free or reduced lunch. I am hoping to incorporate their diverse cultural backgrounds into their learning experience, so that they can learn and grow from each other.

I am excited about creating a close-knit, supportive classroom community.

I want my kindergartners to feel that they are loved and capable of achieving anything they put their minds to. I am looking to provide my students with a purposeful, productive, creative learning experience.

My Project

I am hoping to receive these seat sacks to make my classroom more organized. They would allow students to keep their own personal items with them at their seats, ready for use when needed.

Having these seat sacks would allow for more instructional time and keep the classroom more organized.

The seat sacks would store students' science notebooks, math notebooks, word study journals, crayons, pens, and pencils. Currently, these items are stored in cabinets within the room. When they are being used, they must be passed out by me and then put away at the end of the day. This is a tedious and time consuming process that wastes classroom time. With the seat sacks, students would be able to access their materials as needed throughout the day.
