My Students

My Kindergarten babies are spontaneous, loving, and, most importantly, the most resilient group of kiddos that I have ever had the pleasure of loving. We have grown to become a close family. We keep each other laughing and smiling. The love in my room is contagious.

In August of 2017, our little town was turned upside down by Hurricane Harvey.

Our elementary school and most of my students homes were impacted drastically by the hurricane. We lost just about everything in our classrooms due to the flood waters. We started school around a month late when we were later placed at a junior high school. My five- and six-year-old babies have had to write, color, cut, and learn to adapt to a junior high cafeteria, desk, and bathrooms. They have never had the privilege of a playground. They have adapted to playing in an empty field. We have made the best out of the situation.

These five- and six-year-old children have dealt with more this year then any five- and six-year-old should have to deal with. Yet they still come to school each day with smiles.

My Project

I am asking for lap boards, markers, erasers, a storage center, and a CD players. The lap boards will help to enhance learning and create a fun way to write our letters and sight words. This will also give students a way to make their writing their own! In Kindergarten, music is a huge part of our learning. I have many fun CDs that could be played on this new CD players to also help enhance the students learning. Music creates a fun, memorable way to learn things such as our ABC's, numbers, words, days of the week, months of the year, and even weather! What kid doesn't like to sing?!?!
