My Students

Third grade is made up of a fun, incredibly smart, and diverse bunch of kiddos. They are all talented in so many different ways. We love to work together, especially playing games that stimulate our brains!

It is so important to start the day warming up our most important muscle, the brain!

Watching students build on their gaming skills throughout the year is so fun! By the end of the year, students have come up with so many strategies to win their games and they love sharing those ideas with their peers!

My Project

Third grade is in need of new brain games! These brain games will be used among all of the third grade classrooms to help our students stimulate their brains and get ready to learn before the day starts. We play brain games first thing in the morning. These brain games help our students learn techniques to strategize before making moves and they work on team building.

It is important to have our students setting goals and thinking ahead before acting.

These skills are important to students throughout the whole school day and are essential to them throughout the rest of their schooling!
