Third grade is an exciting, monumental time in an 8 year old's life. They are given more responsibility and are learning how to be a respectful, caring community member.
It is my passion to help guide my students into becoming kind, compassionate people that want to help make a change for the better.
My students are learning how to work together not only as a classroom community, but as a productive member of society. As a class, we love to work together to generate new ideas to help our communities grow.
Our classroom is lacking a community space to come together for our daily meetings and whole group lessons. The impact from having a comfortable, welcoming meeting space changes the attitudes of students to be more open and willing to share ideas and their thinking. A big, friendly rug that we sit together for close companionship and comradely sharing our interests is exactly what is needed for this empty space in our classroom.
A comfortable classroom is key to helping students build trust, which leads to strong relationships, which then can motivate risk-taking, creativity, and learning.
I chose a large educational rug that matches the outer space theme of our room from Nasco. I love this because it is large enough to fit our usual class size comfortably and it will spark their curiosity of our solar system.
