    third grade

    I love third grade. The kids are so excited about learning at this age. They are curious about everything. They are also pretty well trained so they know the rules and where to go and what to do. They can have more independent work, but compared to fifth graders, you might find that they need more teacher attention than you are used to. They are also not so attached to their parents (like first and second graders) and not too independent that they have attitudes (like fourth and fifth graders). It is a hard year, because it is the first year they are required to take state tests (required soon in all states, but already a requirement in mine). They are not used to the work load or being as accountable for what they learn as they now are compared to first and second. However, they are definately my first choice of grade to teach because of how much they enjoy school and want to learn.
