My Students

Third grade is an amazing year! Students are learning to become leaders and start to see themselves as people with choices in their education and in their lives. They are transitioning from primary students to elementary students.

Third graders like to laugh and dance, while also starting to take education seriously.

I want to give my students every opportunity to make the most of their third grade experience. By making learning fun and engaging students will begin to have a lifelong love for learning.

My Project

This year I will have many students in my classroom that have individual education plans and receive special education services. I would like to provide as many opportunities as possible for all my students to be successful in my classroom.

Bouncy chairs and stress bands improve focus.

Especially for students with ADHD needs these kinds of products can make the difference in the classroom. I would like to try these balls with the legs in hopes that they can even be used at their desks when they are trying to really focus on items such as standardized tests and other important work.
