I teach a self-contained special education class of thirteen students in rural Dillon county. My students are on kindergarten through seventh grade levels. I am responsible for teaching all areas of the curriculum on numerous levels. Seventy-five percent of our school receives free lunch and 100% receive free breakfast. As you can see, a majority of the students come from low socio-economic homes. A majority of the students in my classroom have never traveled outside of the county. The beach is an hour drive away and most have never been to the beach and will never see the mountains. All the students in class are very interested in the events happening throughout the United States. We have used the classroom computer to read about the hurricanes that have devastated the gulf coast and portions of Florida. We have discussed our neighboring states and will discuss in the coming months our nation's capital and surrounding states. Each state will be discussed and important facts of each will be learned throughout the school year. As we discuss current events and facts related to each state, I want to be able to point out the location of each and every state. I would like to furnish the classroom with a rug illustrating the states. A rug, rather than a wall map, is a good beginning point for learning how to about maps. At this time of the school year and with their present map reading abilities, a wall map is too complicated. Later as the students progress in their ability to read maps, we will add a large map of North America to our classroom. The rug will also be used during independent reading and during group discussions. Although these students will never be able to see the locations first hand, they will understand that the event or person discussed is far away or nearby. Weather patterns can also be discussed and followed as the patterns develop and/or change. We can discuss how or why events, people or weather conditions effect our lives. Discussions will also raise interest and desire to read more about a particular subject. I have witnessed this situation this year! Hopefully in the long run, we can improve our reading scores and increase our knowledge in geography and national events.
