A classroom’s environment will create the mood for learning. In our class, we make sure we have a positive atmosphere to foster learning, growing, and taking risks.
Our third graders are enthusiastic and energetic.
They love to be challenged, they love to share their knowledge, and they thrive by working well with others and creating a team environment. We are fortunate to have a wide variety of cultures so we can learn about each other and work with people who have different strengths and experiences.
My students love to learn, but they love to play, too! Play is such an invaluable aspect of a child’s growth socially, physically, and academically. These playground balls will allow my students to participate in group sports which will encourage and cultivate cooperation and sportsmanship while also practicing motor skills. Of course, fresh air and exercise are always good for the spirit, too. The wiggle seats are a great option for students who have difficulty sitting still in the classroom. They allow students to get the wiggles out while maintaining focus on the work they need to complete. Activity is important to the health and happiness of my students. Thank you for providing these materials to help keep them active!
