I am a first grade teacher at P.S.169 in Brooklyn, New York. The school is a Title I school, which means that the majority of the students qualify for free lunch. We are a melting pot of a various ethnic groups. Many of the students come from homes where English is not their first language. Many of the parents work long hours to make ends meet. The children do not go straight home. Many of the students attend after-school programs and/or stay with a babysitter until their parents return from work. This is where many of them do their homework. As you might imagine, it is difficult for many of them to keep track of where they put their homework. I think that if they had the School-to-home organizers, misplacing their homework would happen less frequently. Many of the children are six or seven years old, so knowing that there is a place to keep their homework would prevent them from making an excuse like, "My dog ate my homework." Lakeshore makes these great organizers that would make life so much easier for my first graders. These organizers would let them know that "there is a place for everything and everything has it's place," and help them develop organizational skills that will be crucial to their future academic success.
