Spick N' Span!

My students need 2 tabletop communication centers and 20 seat sacks.

My Students

"A place for everything and everything in its place!" Work habits are being formed in our 4th grade classroom but we could sure use some help with the organizational part.

There are 19 very active boys and girls in my classroom everyday.

We are self-contained and try hard to respect each other's property. But, as you can see from our picture, our room is small and crowded. Our school is a magnet school that follows the tenets of the Primary Years Program in the International Baccalaureate program. We have many wonderful qualities but the crowded room sometimes makes it hard to always show our best side!

My Project

As I look around my room, I am feeling very sorry for "Mary". She is always the one to move aside,the one to line up last, or to get the last book off the shelf. I guess that's because she is so gentle. It's easier to wait than to "fight" the crowd. Building work habits and skills in young minds is a difficult task but one that could be so much easier if we had more room. Since that isn't possible, perhaps some organizational materials would help. Our desks are small so having the chair pockets would help keep books off the floor. The paper storage center would be a perfect way to set out papers needed for foldables, posters, and art projects. My favorite is the communication center. I plan for each child to have his/her own slot. All of their weekly work would be collected in their slot. Each Friday, the work to go home is already organized by student! No tears because of lost or misplaced work.

I know that my class will benefit from this project.

They are great kids but sometimes scattered. I hope that they will learn that organization is a huge part of school and will continue to be so later on in their professional lives.
