My kids stay in the same classroom for reading to math, which means my classroom is their home away from home. In my school, these students are given a great deal of responsibilities throughout the day. My school is a Title I School in the middle of an extremely diverse community. Many students rely on school for a safe environment and receive 2/3 of their daily meals in school.
I believe that in addition to providing my students with the best education possible, my job includes providing a safe, comfortable environment for my students to always feel welcome and wanted.
I do my best with whatever resources I have available, but being a third year teacher, these resources are limited. I love my students as if they were my own children, and would do anything for them to feel the love and comfort I try to provide for them.
In the third grade, the end-of-year exams are a huge elephant in the room when students are learning. They fearfully anticipate this test and have been thinking about it daily since open house at the beginning of the year.
I want to make this end-of-the-year assessment as stress free as possible and that means I need review materials that are student friendly and engaging, but still rigorous to prepare them for this test.
I hope to use these materials in a fun way at the end of the school year to help review what we have learned all year. The workbooks are reproducible, so I only need one, and I included a bundle of cards that are in full color and can be written on, but also can be reproduced for students as well.
