My 26 curious learners are ALWAYS looking to learn more, finding anything that will deepen their experience. They constantly ask the best questions, but what truly amazes me is when they work to find the answers their own wonderings.
The challenge of discovering something new feeds my hungry thinkers.
The biggest indicator of a hard-working day is our messy classroom. My students, who have focused all of their energy on satisfying their thirst for learning, leave behind the physical remnants of their day.
Our third grade class is constantly learning. Often that learning can be seen with the evidence left on the floor at the end of the day.
From tiny scraps of paper from a sort activity in math to eraser shavings accidentally swept off the table after a thoughtful narrative writing assessment, the messy floor doesn't lie; we worked HARD.
Beyond the proof of learning left on the carpet, my students also enjoy 3 meals a day in the same room: breakfast, lunch, and snack. Food crumbs always end up on the floor (they're kids, it's normal!).
My students and I spend a good amount of time tiding up our classroom each day; time that could be better utilized with more learning experiences. Having a robotic vacuum in our classroom would help us focus ALL our attention on learning.
Plus, we study coding and robots in third grade, so it would be an amazing opportunity for students to see such a useful example in our own classroom.
