Everyone likes a place to put their things! We paint, color, write, and create every day. The key to a successful Kindergarten classroom is structure and organization.
My students love school.
They are eager to learn everything I can possibly teach them. With a co-integrated classroom, it is even more necessary than usual to teach organizational skills. In a class of 25 Kindergarten students, we have 8 students with disabilities, and 4 adults in the room during the day. We have learned to work well in the space we have, but are always looking for ways to consolidate and save space.
Right now, we have to put the work of 4 students into one basket and then waste time at the end of each day sorting through their things. This time could be valuable teaching time! With individual slots for each child, the end of the day pack up time would be a much faster and more efficient process for the students. Also, it would help teach the students responsibility as they would be required to care for and maintain their own spots in the mail center.
Extra learning time and extra space are two of the most sought after and valuable things we can give to young children.
This classroom mail center will help us to provide both to an eager and excited group of kids!
