I am lucky enough to teach some of the most amazing third graders. Our school is in a rapidly growing area. Many students come from middle-class families with working parents. As a Leader in Me school, we work hard to ensure that the students learn to live the 7 Habits and have a Growth Mindset. This means, as a school, we work collaboratively to reach the needs of each student and help each student be confident in who they are and their abilities.
My students love school, are eager to learn and grow, and are full of questions.
Third grade is an amazing grade full of new concepts, especially in math they have never seen before. This presents a challenge to many students. My kiddos have a wide variety of academic needs and goals. Small group instruction is important to make sure each of the students are able to get the specific help they need to master these new concepts. Our district's goal is to help students reach their academic goals, every student every day!
In third grade, there are many new math concepts learned. Using time maniplatives is a great way to help the students really understand the new content.
A lot of what we learn this year is hard for some of them to grasp without the needed hands-on resources to really solidify certain concepts.
Hands-on learning is a fabulous way to learn and explore new things. It promotes students to ask questions and learn their own unique way.
With new clock manipluatives, magnetic place value blocks, and a cart to store them, our class will be ready to rock and roll in no time. Staying organized is important to keep our new tools nice and neat
