Help me give my students trays to keep them organized as they switch through their classes. These trays will help them keep up with their work and belongings and give them a sense of ownership in their work.
My students are energetic, inquisitive, and love their school! They thrive in a classroom that encourages them to take risks, try new things, and work through mistakes and failures. Many come from diverse backgrounds and homes that often do not afford the opportunity to experience the world outside of their own neighborhood. School offers them a gateway to the world beyond the neighborhood and the walls of the classroom.
They love hands-on, interactive activities, particularly when they get to incorporate technology.
Activities that allow them to discover and create on their own energize them and help give them the motivation and interest they need to work through new and difficult skills and concepts. With a lot of love and a little support, these students can do anything!
Teaching organization and personal responsibility is an important part of elementary education. These trays will help students keep up with their belongings and give them a sense of ownership for their work and supplies in class. We have students who come to school without backpacks and supplies and these trays will give them a place that is their own to keep their belongings. When switching between classes, it can be difficult for students to manage and keep track of their folders, books, and supplies. These trays are compact and portable which helps limit the amount of belongings and makes transitions easier.
