My students need a place to browse for books and learn in math centers. WE need bookcases and more.

My Students

My students are "survivors" of Hurricane Harvey. Over half of the students in our class had water invade their homes. They lost beds, clothes, and favorite toys. Many of them are currently still living with extended family members and friends. Some students have returned to their homes, but with concrete floors and limited furniture.

My students are resilient, flexible, and compassionate.

They met their new 3rd grade teacher on Friday and saw their new classroom. The flood waters came a few days later and drastically changed their school year. They will never be able to return to that classroom or campus again (4th grade students in our district attend school on a different campus). However, they have continued to amaze me with their positive spirits, especially on those first difficult days when everything was so different in all of our lives.

My Project

After the flooding of Hurricane Harvey, I had to pack up our classroom to move to another school. I have hundreds of books that are still in boxes in a storage building because there are no shelves or bookcases to put them. I would love to be able to make available to students books with different reading levels and genres.

Practicing mathematical concepts with math manipulatives is an important part of a student's success.

We need a designated place in our classroom to have these manipulatives available for the students to use in center activities or for guided math groups.
