My Students

My classroom is a Dual Language classroom in a Title I school district. This means my students all come from Spanish speaking homes and most of them come from poverty. My students are trying to learn all the objectives that the state requires them to learn at the same time that they are trying to learn a new language.

Due to Hurricane Harvey, we lost many classroom materials, and many of my students lost almost everything in their homes as well.

My whole school was displaced the whole first semester, and I was teaching in a library together with another pk class. Most of my colleagues were doubled up as well. Our students were crowded and trying to learn in a very difficult situation; despite all that, we recently tested our students' academic progress and the majority of them are right on track to master all the goals at the end of the year. Many of them are well above.

My Project

Harvey came through our area and created chaos and devastation. It left behind bad memories, insecurities and broken dreams. My students all had to live through all of this and they are only four years old. My whole school was displaced for the first semester and we were moved to a library within another school. We shared the space with another class as well. Our space was crowded and we had 40 + kids in there.

Now that we are back at our original campus, I am trying to organize the learning stations throughout our classroom.

Our art learning station needs help with many materials because we lost so much during Harvey.

All the materials I have requested like the cardstock, scissors, paint, chalk, markers, canvases, craft sticks, and scrap book paper will all be placed in our art learning station and all the students will rotate through it on a daily basis.

These materials will encourage my students to create masterpieces and let their imaginations run wild! All their art projects will be displayed on our walls for the whole school to see!
