I am amazed every morning when I open the classroom door for my students at how ready they are to learn. I love seeing my students fired up on Monday morning, hands flying up in the air whenever a question is asked. Third grade is truly a blast with these kiddos!
When I first opened the door and met my students for the first time during Meet and Greet, I was surprised at how independent and social my kiddos seemed to be.
I really had to ask myself, "of all the 3rd-grade classrooms in my school, did I get all the hard workers?" My students work so hard to be engaged and support one another in learning. The 26 students in my class, while very diverse, have worked with me to create such a welcoming, accepting learning environment. When a student is absent for a day, the whole class is so quick to inform them of what they missed out on when they return to school. I couldn't have asked for a better third-grade class.
Flexible seating is something I personally feel is so beneficial for third grade students, and children in general. Offering students as many options as possible really allows each student to personally find a seating arrangement option that fits their learning style the best.
The five blue wobble stools that you would donate towards providing for my classroom would make a world of a difference for many of my more hyper-active students.
I am so excited to see how they respond to a new seating choice that allows them to get our their wiggles in a positive way without distracting their classmates.
