My Students

My third grade class consists of an incredible group of 8 and 9 years old that attend our title one school in Howard, WI.

These children love to share their work and thinking with the world around them.

Seeing their artwork and writing on display brings them well deserved pride and joy. They love to wiggle and move, and are curious about just about everything. This is the first year these children have had one to one devices (iPads) so they are learning a lot of technical and problem solving skills, which they are getting REALLY good at. This class enjoys creating vlogs about books, #booksnaps, and other projects to demonstrate what they are learning.

It is difficult to describe my class as a whole because each child is unique in their own ways. Today they responded to a writing prompt asking them what they would do if the clouds were falling. I had one child who explained that clouds were made of millions of microscopic droplets of water, several that discussed the fluffy texture or delicious taste the clouds might have and another who was excited to experience heaven. Each child is incredible. As a class, just imagine. #TogetherisBetter

My Project

Third grade curriculum sets high expectations for 8 and 9 year olds. It can be difficult for children to move around the classroom without disrupting their learning or the learning of those around them. Even with build in movement and brain break, some friends just have bodies that like to keep moving. Also, all bodies need movement to stay healthy, and when we are physically healthy our brains work better too!

These wobble chairs will provide a safe opportunity for kids to wiggle while they work.

I can already picture some of my little learners groin' to class music, wiggling happily on the new wobble chairs while they color, write or problem solve on paper.
