My Students

I am a new year teacher and I am so excited to meet my 3rd grade students! I student taught 3rd grade and loved working with this age group.

3rd grade can be challenging for some because of the state testing students start to take in 3rd grade.

However, I am hoping to make this experience fun and engaging for my students.

In my classroom I want to make sure my students have all the materials they need to be successful!

My Project

I am a new first year teacher hoping to get my classroom started for my students. I will be teaching 3rd grade this upcoming school year, as a first year teacher there are many supplies I need to provide for my classroom.

The materials provided on my list will assist myself and my students.

I have included colored pencils, pencils, erasers, etc. for my students. Also, I included a few book sets to get my classroom library started and provide my students with books they will be interested in. I am hoping to make this year the best for my students!
