Hello all. I'm super excited because I'm transitioning to third grade next year. I've taught first grade for seven years so I know I'm going to have tons of questions. In first grade, I was accustomed to having the students move from their seats to the carpet and vice versa quite a bit. I liked having them close to me when I gave instructions. It also helped to break up the monotony of the day. How often, if at all, do you have third graders meet on the carpet? If you don't have them move to the carpet, what are some ways that you allow movement in the classroom? Thanks.
