My Students

After 16 years as a 1st grade teacher, I am moving to kindergarten. It is so important to start these children off on the right foot with discipline, routines and organization. I need help to make those core values a reality for my incoming class in September. This class is a kindergarten ICT class. Half of the students in this class have IEPs and tools for organization are very important to their success in the classroom. These students will also benefit from having their own personal space to store their tools and books. Please donate towards these seat sacks to help my students learn about organization and to help transitions flow with ease throughout our day. It’s also a great way to make the most of our space. Thanks in advance for all your help!

My Project

These seat sacks will help my young learners keep their materials organized and at their fingertips. They will also help us to save space in the classroom for other important tools and materials. These seat sacks will hold all of their books, crayons, scissors and other important tools. These seat sacks will help teach the students to be responsible for their own books and tools and will also provide them with lessons in organization and responsibility. The youngest learners need to be able to have their own personal space and feel a sense of ownership. This classroom is part of a Title I school and any help towards getting my students the right foundation to begin their learning journey is welcomed and appreciated. We ask that you please consider helping our youngest learners with one of the most important skills to begin learning, organization. Thanks for helping us!
