Tornado After Math: Putting it All Back in Place
My students need a few more things for my room to be finished. These items will be beneficial as supplements to our in-class projects. This includes mathematics lessons, calculators, scissors, erasers, velcro, a file cabinet, and a mobile organization cart.
Have you ever had to start over? At Highland East, that is what we are all doing. Since the May 20th tornado swept through Moore and tore apart our school and two other schools, we are rebuilding. We are ready to start a new school year and help our students return to what used to be their "normal".
My students are my expanded family.
I talk about them at home, tell their funny stories in and away from school, and talk to their parents. These children are my lifelines. Some of them come from homes where they can't afford to help at school financially, so I need some help getting everything they need.
This year, many of my students, like their teachers, are starting over. Many of them don't live in the same home they did 3 months ago. Some of them are advanced and some of them are a little behind in their learning. However, they all share a common bond of the community in which they live. They are all loved by all of us and they will all learn from all of us.
The manipulatives that I am requesting for my classroom will be extremely helpful in the beginning of rebuilding my classroom.
I stored all of my math handheld "helpers" in the closet of my classroom. The closet was a complete loss, as was everything inside. The bulk of what I use to teach was in that closet. With your help, my students will benefit greatly this year! I am very eager to return to my school and begin the process of returning everything to its previous state.
