Lost Papers and Pencils and Books…Oh My!
Creative products that get students organized for success.
“I know my paper is in here somewhere!”
“I can’t find a pencil.”
“I did my homework, but I can’t find it!”
As an educator, are these comments all too familiar? Whether in the home or classroom, creating an organized environment will increase the time and focus on learning. Establishing organizational systems in the classroom and home at the beginning of the year and teaching students how to use them is an important first step to classroom and homeschool management.
By designating clear locations for specific materials, such as homework, notes home, school supplies and personal items teachers assist students in anticipating the requirements of a specific setting and help them to predict what will be happening during the instructional day. The Original Seat Sack Company has created several products that assist students with organization of their personal space. These products help to keep textbooks, papers, binders, school supplies and other items close at hand for easy access.
The Seat Sack, which is available in a variety of sizes and colors, simply slides over the back of a chair for instant storage of books and papers. Teachers use the Seat Sack for class papers, to store homework folders, or for storage of text books where tables are used in place of desks. “It’s unbelievably well made out of a durable material, “marveled Melissa D., creator of Seusstastic blogspot. Its two inch gusset allows enough room to easily store a binder. Seat Sack is available in a single pocket or a multi- pocket called the Seat Sack Plus which is sold with a pencil pouch. Each item has a clear sleeve where a name card easily slides.
Keeping small school supplies such as; pencils, a box of crayons, Post It Notes and glue sticks close at hand is with the Hand-e-Sack Stick & Store. It’s removable 3M Dual Lock System easily attaches to the side of desk, table, centers or anywhere small items need to be kept close at hand. Hilary R., blog site Rockin Teacher, uses her Hand-e-Sack Stick & Store for organizing word work activities.
The Read-n-Go book bag is a new favorite among teachers, parents and students alike. Robin M., blogger for Inspired by Savannah, is delighted that her daughter loves filling up her bag with books she borrows from the library! The design of the Read-n-Go handle allows the bag to hang on classroom/library book bag racks or from the side of a desk which is perfect for silent reading materials.
Learning to be organized is a process. Organization begins with teaching children how to take pride and care in their personal space. Through the use of Seat Sack products, teachers and parents can model organizational skills to students and gradually increase the scope of a child’s responsibility for managing his or her personal environment.
All three products featured can also be purchased in an Ultimate Organizer Set for an additional savings. Seat Sack products are certified CPSIA to meet child safety standards and flammability tests.
