My Students

Third grade is a year of amazing growth for students. Students work diligently on learning their multiplication facts, writing detailed stories, and working on reading skills. All of this could not be possible without the support of community members and parents.

My class of 21 students is filled with many different personalities and backgrounds.

I have students of different cultures, as well as different beliefs. Our school is made up of almost 400 students (25% which are free/reduced) who try to embody our 3 major school rules of being respectful, responsible, and safe. Every day teachers encourage students to dream, believe, think, and achieve.

My Project

Third grade is a year of change. Students are no longer the little kids but not quite independent enough to be considered a "big" kid. Students feel that since they are not little kids anymore, they can't share feelings and emotions with their peers or teacher.

I would like to purchase a floor table and wobble cushions as a way to promote a safe environment for students to share their feelings and emotions.

When students are comfortable physically, many times they become more comfortably socially. Students let their guard down and are able to open up to their peers and teacher. Right now, our desks do not promote comfort. My goal is that our classroom should feel like a second home. These items would help us create that environment to promote emotional and social learning.
