My Students

The students in this class are excited to be in Third grade. They are ready to learn new concepts in all subject areas . They live to gather together and work in big groups and small groups. They love to work together and greet each other every morning during their Morning Meeting time. They are fun loving kids who are ready to learn and would benefit from a rug to gather on for their learning. The students are excited to work !

My Project

Having a big area rug for the students to sit on is beneficial for their learning. They are able to sit together for various learning and social activities throughout the day. Every morning the students gather in the meeting area to start their day. They would love a rug that is big enough for them to all fit comfortably. It’s a benefit for all students to gather in one place to attend group lessons. The rug also will serve as a quiet area where the students can work on their assignments. Your help would be greatly appreciated by the students in my class.
