My students are extremely curious and, since it is their first year in an all-day structured program, they transition often from guided instruction to free choice learning. We have learning center time and a state-approved curriculum to keep them on track with other children their age in our state. I tell my students that they are the "Best kids in Texas" and our motto is "We are all friends."
I teach Pre-Kindergarten students at a Title I school in Texas, where we are currently recovering from Hurricane Harvey.
All of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. The majority of my students are English Language Learners and have lots of excitement about school.
We are in a small outdoor portable building and lots of dirt travels inside with us and since my students are Pre-Kindergarten, you can imagine the mess! This is has been a rough year trying to get rid of lice in our school as well and we need cleaning materials to help prevent and clean this season. Families are still living in small, tight quarters after Hurricane Harvey and we have seen an increase in lice and even fleas.
Our custodian is fabulous and does all she can to help us but I like to help with our part to keep our environment clean by using a spot cleaner, push brooms and cleaning agents.
We also have rest blankets that need to be washed but not all of our parents have access to washing machines. Luckily, we have a machine at school but the detergent pods will be used to clean the blankets. The spot cleaner will be a great help during times of those unfortunate accidents children have on the carpet.
Thank you so much for helping our classroom become a tidy place to learn.
