This is my 4th year teaching 3rd grade! I taught 1st grade for half a year and loved the little ones. I am truly enjoying have students that are able to work independently and can use their strategies on their own. I teach all subject areas and enjoy seeing students receive that "ah ha" moment, when they are discovering an answer for the first time. I am currently starting my national boards and opening my TPT store. Wish me luck!
I prefer small groups to whole groups. Small groups are the best way I have found to hone in our skills and master others. I love when my students are engaged and get to move around. We love to learn around the room on pillows or flipped chairs instead of in our seats. We have a rule in my room that you have to use the unit vocabulary in your table group discussions and tables get points to doing so. I just love teaching!
