    Third grade
    By Bonnie

    i haven't taught fifth grade but I taught third grade for 5 years. I've also taught first and second grades. It may take a little while to adjust to third grade. I found it to be differenet than other grades--it's a transitional grade. Third graders are beginning to think inferentially. At the beginning of the year, they are still primary grade kids. By the end of the year, many of them are intermediates.

    My suggestion is to give them more frequent breaks at the beginning, gradually stretching the time between breaks. Get them out of their seats from time to time to move around--jump, stretch, sing a song.

    It will get better as they mature. Third grade is my favorite grade to teach.
