I began this school year teaching at Brock Elementary School in Slidell, Louisiana. Because of Hurricane Katrina,about five feet of water completely destroyed my classroom. Everything that I have purchased, inherited from generous teachers, or created in my five-year career as a teacher was ruined by the floodwaters. My losses were not insured. Thankfully, my job was spared, and I was transferred to another school in the district. I now teach sixteen Transitional First Grade students, all of who were affected to varying degrees by Hurricane Katrina. These children have been through so much, yet have shown so much resiliency. Transitional First Grade students need a developmental curriculum for a year between Kindergarten and First Grade. The curriculum is based on developmentally appropriate practices, and emphasis is placed on play, the child's natural approach to learning. Part of the guidelines for the T-1 curriculum state that learning activities and materials should be concrete, real, and relevant to the lives of young children. Because I have lost so many materials and manipulatives in the storm, it is difficult to create a classroom environment that these children need. I have been purchasing all of my materials out of my own pocket. My students would greatly benefit from a nice listening center. This center will allow the students to work independently by listening to literature on CD as they read along and playing Listening Lotto games that I have purchased, and that I am requesting through Listening Center Fun (Part 1). In order to use the materials that I have for our listening center, the proper equipment is necessary. I would like to have a Califone Classroom CD and Dual Cassette Player, listening center mobile storage center, 8 station junction box, and headphones. Thank you!!!
