Keeping materials organized is definitely a difficult part of managing elementary kids on a daily basis. Do you keep students’ materials in disorganized colored containers on the back shelf that belong to different table groups? You know: Group 1 uses a red bin and in it are all the crayons, scissors, markers, sharpies, etc., that said group uses. Group 2 uses blue bin, while Group 3 uses a green bin, and so on.
How about the sound of the “lift-the-lid” desks? The creaking and distraction they cause! And let’s not forget the inability to see your student’s face while his/her top is flipped open; one can only wonder what said student is doing. Or, let’s say you’ve instructed your students to remove a book from their desks and in pandemonium, the entire class opens their desks causing that creaking, squeaking noise! Some students may begin to chatter, while others might shuffle around papers, and after all that chaos, desk lids slam shut and finally, your students have retrieved their books at your request.
Perhaps you homeschool your children and don’t have a formal “desk” for school. Instead, you’ve provided your kids with a table you found at a garage sale. The table is great because it’s big and seats 4, and you’re not really worried about pencil/pen marks because it’s your kids’ school desk. But, you still have that colored bin that contains all school materials for your kids. Sometimes they share well, and other times, they don’t. Plus, the pile of books that sometimes (believe it or not) gets in the way can really get the best of you.
Does any of this sound familiar?
The Seat Sack Company has designed a handful of simple solutions to these aforementioned problems. In fact, I was lucky enough to receive a sample of nearly everything they have available.The Ultimate Organizer set is one of The Seat Sack Company’s new products. The Ultimate Organizer actually contains four different items, all of which are designed to eliminate disorder of classrooms and/or desks: a Seat Sack Plus™, a Read-n-Go, a Pencil Pouch, and a Hand-e-Sack
The Seat Sack Plus™ is designed to fit on the back of a classroom chair and contains three pockets. One large pocket could fit books, a laptop, a tablet, binder, etc., while twosmaller pockets could store markers, pencils, scissors, etc. The Seat Sack Plus™ is similar to the Original Seat Sack, only the The Seat Sack Plus™ contains three pockets while the Original Seat Sack contains one larger pocket. Both come in a variety of sizes, ranging
The Read-n-Go organizer is a bag designed to transport library books. What a wonderful idea! First, the bag can hook onto a student’s desk, so the bag can stay there all week, and only leave your students’ desks when the class visits the library. The Read-n-Go organizer has a plastic, transparent covering protecting books from weather, dirt, scratches, etc., and it snaps shut.
The Pencil Pouch is awesome because it’s a bag designed to store writing utensils. Finally students can be given writing materials and held responsible for keeping their pencils sharpened, markers capped, and crayons in one piece!
The Hand-e-Sack is also a cool product because, like the Read-n-Go organizer, the Hand-e-Sack hangs on a student’s desk as well. It’s a smaller organizer and probably better for items like a box of colored pencils, note cards, sticky notes, or anything that likely will not be used on a daily basis (or, it could be a good place for a cell phone. I gasp at the thought of this, but it’s not too far-fetched these days!).
The Seat Sack Company offers flexible buying options. So, teachers can buy the Ultimate Organizer Set in bulk. Or, parents can simply buy one product, if that’s desirable. The Seat Sack Company’s products are well-made. Built with a sturdy, easy to clean poly/cotton material, all products are flame-retardant and Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) Certified. They are machine washable and allow classroom chairs stack easily, without removing the Seat Sack. What a plus!
While I was only given the Ultimate Organizer Set, I know the company offers products for dorm rooms, lockers, and offices as well. So, go ahead and check out all of the cool stuff The Seat Sack Company has available!
