Teacher, where do I put my backpack?

My students need a place to store their backpacks. We were recently moved to a classroom without cubbies so my little ones don't have a place to store their backpacks.

My Students

My beautiful students are five year old little boys and girls of Latino cultural background. They live in the neighborhoods of Mid City Los Angeles and go to a title one community school. They are 100% English Language Learners eager to learn and have fun doing so! Most of my students have not had any school experience before entering my classroom. They are generally shocked by the school experience but then assimilate and grow from there. I'm very proud of how much my students accomplish in just a year!

My Project

My students are just starting their educational journeys. As a lot of people might know, kindergarteners are at an age where routine and organization are very important. Therefore, having a place to store their belongings is of utmost importance. This cubbie idea is very much needed because it allows for consistent organization and also calls for responsibility in my students. They will need to learn where to put their belongings and to know what and when to get their materials. Furthermore, having a designated time and place to organize themselves is very beneficial in life. This way everything is organized and ready to do its purpose.
