Starting a new school year can make some kids feel uneasy. There's a new classroom, new classmates and a new teacher.
As you'll see in our Never Stop Learning report, or some students there really is no transition. It's as if they never left for their summer break.
Students are setting their goals with the help of Ms. Sewer. She taught them in the second grade and is now with them in the third. She is one of five looping teachers at Johnston Elementary School.
Teachers and students say it's easy, there's no "getting to know you". Ms. Sewer knows their parents and the kids know the classroom rules and expectations.
Ms. Sewer believes in taking breaks through out the day to allow the students to move around, and that's why the students are allowed to do away with their chairs and sit instead on exercise balls.
Ms. Sewer says research shows movement stimulates brain activity.
