Sixty percent of the students in my class lost their homes and belongings in Hurricane Harvey. In addition, they lost their classroom too. We began school a month later than planned at a local church in town.
My students are brave and adaptable.
These are just a few words I could use to describe them. They have embraced this year and have made the best out of the traumatic time in their short little lives. I cannot say enough good things about this sweet little class.
My students need this shelf and the bins to hold their center tools. They go to centers three times per day now at the church. Once for reading, once for math, and once to explore through play for now. If it were a normal kindergarten experience in a large spacious classroom there is a chance they would go to centers five times a day. An organized place to store their center "jobs" is needed. Our day is not the only thing that has been altered by Harvey.....
We lost all classroom furniture to the flood waters of Hurricane Harvey, and I have made it my mission to get them back.
I like to teach my class to be organized, but we can't be organized without shelves. These shelves with bins would hold dice, learning games, blocks, manipulatives, books, counters, and so much more.
