Our classroom is apart of a large urban elementary school with over 700 students. Students in our school and in my class are mostly English as a second language learners (ESL) from low SES households. My ambitious learners are in the third grade; however, many start the year reading one to two grade levels below that.
Despite whatever challenges my students may face, each day they enter the classroom with a smile, happy to be in school and ready to learn.
They are some of the hardest workers I know and as their teacher, my wish is to provide them with all the tools and materials necessary to help them all achieve their goals!
Our school is departmentalized, which means I have two ELA classes and 50 total students! While my students have loved rotating between classes in the years past, it has definitely been a challenge for my third graders. Far too many times my students walk into my class only to remember they forgot their pencil box or glasses in their other classroom. Keeping track of their belongings is hard, but rotating between classes while balancing all of their supplies (and a Chromebook!) has proven to be an even bigger struggle!
I have tried a thousand different ways to help my students organize their belongings between classes but after many dropped Chromebooks and forgotten folders I knew there had to be an easier way!
These tote bags will serve as the perfect solution! They will allow my students to carry their Chromebooks and all other necessary supplies needed.
These tote bags will increase the flow of our daily routine in both classes and will also optimize student responsibility and independence!
