We Need Socks!

My students need a class set of socks, one for our chairs and another for our desks and tables.

My Students

We are in an older school, and our floor has surely seen better days. The janitors make the floors shiny and "new" during vacation, but it doesn't take long for chairs, desks, and tables to scratch them all up when school begins. We would like to protect our floor using these materials.

I teach fourth grade at a public school in a small community.

We highly depend on agricultural and logging industries in our area. We are considered a high poverty area and many of our students qualify for free and reduced lunches. My incoming fourth graders this year is a large class, thus we have more chairs, desks, and tables in the classroom. That also means more moving around when working with various partners and groups.

My Project

I believe in keeping materials that one has in the best condition possible, therefore these tennis ball-type socks that are placed over the feet of chairs, desks, and tables allow for such furniture to be moved without harming the floor. No more scratches, no more digs, no more gouging holes in the old floor! Right now, the floor is uneven in spots and also has holes in it from years of furniture movement. I do not want to see it worsen. Aside from these materials protecting the floor, I believe they will allow my students to understand why it is important to care for our things, therefore providing real-life messages to them as well.

These materials will help keep my classroom in a better condition for years to come.

I ask for your support in providing my students with a safe working environment and in showcasing responsibility with regard to what these materials will do.
