I have two classes with 22 third grade students in each class that love to learn. They all come from different backgrounds but one thing they have in common is they like to have fun when they learn. Many of my students are kinesthetic learners and like to move as they are learning. I have some students that will stand up at their desk and move their feet to help them stay focused. Some of our daily activities include small group, math review, and math stations. Several of our students were displaced during Hurricane Harvey. Homes in the area had damage and the students were out of school. These students deserve the best learning environment that we can provide and I feel that with this DonorsChoose project it will help them learn and stay focused on their learning.
Learning is all about reaching the students and providing a positive learning environment. Third graders no doubt like to move. They learn sitting on the floor discussing with a partner and sitting in a small group during Guided Math. The Wobble chairs and Flex floor seats will allow students to learn because they will be more engaged. Studies indicate that students that have short time periods of physical activity in the classroom tend to be more engaged in learning. It will provide an outlet without interrupting their learning. Not to mention the students will be excited about coming into the classroom to learn!
