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 every day 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!
Rainy days keep students locked inside for 8 straight hours! These games will give students an opportunity to take a brain break while secretly still learning. Educational games show students that learning is fun and allows them to work with their friends to build social skill and take a break from all the hard work they do all day! We need ink too.
Motivating students is hard work!
The games and candy will also be used as class rewards on the prize wheel. When students reach a goal they are allowed to spin the prize wheel and can win game time or treats. The yarn will be used for our interactive class map to trace the path many immigrants took at they came to Louisiana. Thank you for your help in stocking my classroom with fun incentives and games for those rainy day blues!
