I am a kindergarten teacher originally from St. Bernard Parish. Katrina caused the loss of my job and home. I have been blessed with a new job in a wonderful new town in Livingston Parish. Through DonorsChoose, I have been able to replace some of the teaching supplies lost in the flood waters. My problem now is that I don't have any place to store them or set them up in an accessible way for my students. I am asking for some shelving for my students manipulatives and educational toys. this proposal is for a bench for our listening center. The bench will keep our listening center neat because it holds everything in place neatly, but it also looks like a cozy place for the children to listen to a book. Listening centers are crucial to the kindergarten learning environment because it allows the children an opportunity to hear accomplished readers besides the teacher read a variety of stories. The students use this as a stepping stone to becoming fluent readers themselves.
