Hello! I teach a self contained Third Grade class. Our school is located less than 1 hour outside the New Orleans area. Therefore, we have many displaced students at our school, and I personally have 3 displaced students. Moreover, half of my class have or had family members living with them due to Hurricane Katrina. Our rural community is in the process of getting 400 FEMA trailers, so the amount of displaced students at our school is rising and will continue to rise through the next school year. In addition, 65% of our students are at the poverty level. Emotionally, the students at our school have been through a lot this year. Some have had their homes totally destroyed, and they no longer live in the same community. To help my students deal with their emotions, we are going to write poetry and use the digital camera to take pictures that will be printed and inserted into the Bare Books that we already bought. Some of their poems will reflect their feeling about the hurricane and all the changes that our community has been through. Because of the influx of people we cannot go on a field trip, but we will walk around the community and my students will take pictures with the camera while under close adult supervision.
