My Students

3rd Graders are amazing! They will learn and grow so much this year. My 30 students are eager learners, ready to take on the world. Third grade is an exciting year where students learn many new concepts; such as multiplication, division, fractions and cursive handwriting!

My students love to express themselves in creative ways.

They come from varied backgrounds and learn in different ways. I try to incorporate different learning materials and resources in my classroom to reach all students. They enjoy working together and helping each other.

In this class, we try to make learning fun and exciting for everyone!

My Project

With these materials my students will be able to develop richer vocabularies, improve their math skills and learn hands-on about gravity, balance and problem solving.

My students will work together in these centers to construct, connect, problem solve and create.

Some of the centers will have an end goal or project to complete and others will be used freely for students to think outside the box.

Constructive "play" in an important part of human brain development for children of all ages. Students will also strengthen fine motor skills and improve social skills while building together towards a common goal and share their creativity and imagination.
