NO OFFICE DAY!

  • OMG my day as a 3rd grader was exhausting. Thank you to Mrs. Wilson and Beckwith, especially Mrs. Wilson's HR for making me feel so welcome. Also, thank you to Mrs. Jones and Mrs. Harris for also inviting me!!!! See the video below :).

  • HERE IS WHAT I LEARNED TODAY...

  1. 3rd graders sit down and stand up a lot! I also learned that I hate sitting on the floor lol (thank you for the accommodations toward the end of the day Mrs. Beckwith!!!)
  2. 3rd graders need all those bathroom breaks! I used EVERY SINGLE ONE!
  3. 3rd graders need Recess!!!!! I was starting to get tired mentally. Being outside was so great and refreshing!
  4. 3rd graders need to be able to talk at Lunch!!!! Lunch was probably my favorite part of the unstructrured time. We had so much great conversation at lunch. Truly, great socializing time for the kids! (We made a plan for World Peace...not really but we sure had great conversation.)
  5. Math is hard in third grade! Also i learned that 3rd graders have much better imaginations than this 45 year old! The only thing i could think of to make groups of was CANDY!
  6. If you love to read and write, you will LOVE third grade. The activities I did in reading and writing were amazing. (Yes I am the student that LOVED to read and write).
  7. Friends are amazing. Please make sure your students have friends in class. I made so many amazing friends today.
  8. TEACHERS MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE. These teachers prepared for my day, created exciting lessons, structured time to talk and move around, and valued what each and every child had to say. Really created the best learning environment one could ever ask for. Also, I didn't get any marks today, even though the kids told me I should have a few times, but the teachers knew I was still learning the ropes.
