My Students

60% of the students in my class last year lost their homes and belongings in Hurricane Harvey. In addition, they lost their classroom. We began school a month later than planned at a local church in town last year. This new school year (18-19), we hope to be back in our building, but it will be a close call!

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 Project

Center play is so important in Kindergarten. A kindergarten classroom also needs seating for children to safely sit while in a learning center. This couch will allow for a nice safe place to sit and learn while in a center. Our funiture and most of our classroom toys were ruined in Hurrican Harvey in 2017 and I still haven't replaced everything we lost.

Play gives children a chance to practice what they are learning.

- Mr. Rogers

With the sight word magnets and storage containers the children will extend on things we are learning in the class while in centers. The students will have freedom in centers to explore with each other and learn by doing. The number recognition pictures and snap dinosaurs will help extend our math and science lesson and allow children to express their creative side.

New pretend play items will allow students to explore through play to develop social skills that kindergarteners need to be successful. They will also develop responsibilty skills and habits by having to clean their messes and put away the toys correctly.
