The students in my classroom are excited to learn new things. They enjoy hands-on activities and learning new materials. Bringing hands-on activities into my class to enhance our reading, science and technology experience has helped to increase my students' love of learning. Many parents have shared with me their child's love of being in our class and the activities that are provided. Being able to provide them with fun learning activities is my goal. Meeting their needs to create and explore is what teaching and learning is all about.
Students in third grade enter the class wondering what the world of third grade is all about. I want to encourage them that at this stage of development, they are no longer learning to read but reading to learn. I want them to be able to explore the world through books and their imaginations. Once you have a child hooked on reading, you have life long readers and writers. Providing students with quality literature is the key to successful learners. Reading is the key to every subject area. Open a book, open a mind.
I watch children everyday in my class reading during quiet time and enjoying the adventures that books provide for them.
