Okay. We all have those kiddos who struggle with organization. The ones who lose their pencil after 5 minutes of being given a new one, the ones that are always the last to transition, the ones whose book bags, desks, lockers, and cubbies are overflowing and in jeopardy of becoming an avalanche. You know what I’m talking about. Well, here’s something that just might help.
First, let’s talk about what it comes with. The Ultimate Organizer comes with the Seat Sack, a zippered pencil case, a hanging pocket, AND a hanging book-in-a-bag! The Seat Sack has two pockets that are sturdy enough to handle textbooks and pretty much anything that a student will throw in there. All of the items in the organizer have a place for a name tag, which is super helpful.
I have to tell you I am very impressed with the durability of the materials used to make the Seat Sack and organizer components. They are very sturdy and should wash well. The Seat Sacks come in a variety of sizes that will fit most chairs. The pockets are nice and roomy. The pencil case and the hanging pocket will keep all of a student’s little items together and out of the way. I absolutely LOVE the hanging book-in-a-bag! It is large, sturdy, with a nice see through front. They are big enough to handle a book, a pack of crayons, materials for a center (now THERE’s an idea!!!), and can be hung for easy access. In fact, I ran across some hanging storage ideas on Pinterest the other day that might work out great for this. One of the ideas was to use a magnetic curtain rod and another was to lay a tension rod across two command hooks. Hmmm…I think I might need to do a little shopping…
I feel that the Seat Sack Ultimate Organizer is best for a self-contained classroom. My fifth graders switch classes, and while this could still be beneficial (especially for locker organization), it would be much easier if the student stayed in one room. Because everything is so sturdy, it could easily be used for multiple years.
Now for what you’ve been waiting for! The Seat Sack company sent me an extra Ultimate Organizer set to give to one of my followers! Yay! Just enter using the Rafflecopter below. The winner will be chosen on Wednesday, April 2 at midnight! Good luck!
