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.
I am asking for help with some of the shelving units from Lake Shore. During Hurricane Harvey we lost all of our shelving units due to the devastating flood waters. The shelves will be used to help orangize the classroom so that these children can get back to some sort of normalcy in their young lives. The children will be able use the shelves that I am asking for during their center station time. Centers are a very important part of our day in kindergarten and having a place to put our center stations items will help in a tremendous way!
