My Students

This group of third graders are eager, hardworking and excited to dig deep into third grade! The school has a high volume of military families meaning these students face many challenges that most adults never experience themselves. Third grade is a difficult year for students since they will begin taking the state standardized LEAP test. It takes hard work, focus and a lot of encouragement for these students to meet the state standards and make our school proud!

My third graders are overcomers!

I push my students everyday to overcome all obstacles that get in their way. They set high and demanding goals and work day after day to reach those goals. I expect them to work collaboratively with each other, participate in deep discussions, read complex texts and write lengthy essays. This is a lot for eight and nine year olds, but they always overcome and have fun along the way!

My Project

Books are piling, up and student papers are taking over! Classroom organization is so important for a well run classroom. Procedures and routines can only be effective if the classroom is well organized and functional for students. The books shelves and cart will allow students to quickly and easily find materials on their level to help them meet their reading goals.

Meeting with my students in small groups is the best way to earn their trust and help them grow!

The stools will make the perfect seating for my small group table. The students will be able to meet with me to work on areas of need to help boost their confidence. These stools are also easy to store when they are not being used. Thank you for your support in organizing my classroom and making it more functional for all of my students!
