Welcome to Third Grade!
In third grade, the students are learning and making new
discoveries each day! They are adapting to being part of
the older half of the school. This can be fun! They are now
the “big buddies” in our school buddy program. It also
comes with more work and responsibilities.
In science we learn about nature and the environment, and we spend time learning
about the weather and making weather predictions.
Social Studies lessons focus on our community
for the first half of the year and then we study
all about the United States of America.
Math lessons now have a primary focus on multiplication and division! Even as the year
progresses, the times tables are practiced
so that thestudents know the answers with ease!
Our Reading groups focus on a different genre
each month with a book report at the end of
each. Some books are read as a class together,
and some are individually picked and read at
home. Each genre ties into the lessons in class
to further facilitate their learning.
English/Grammar and Writing are also important pieces in third grade.
We practice writing in complete sentences to
answer questions,and we expand writing
skills with writing prompts and fun activities.
Our Religion classes and service projects help
us to go a step beyond the regular expected
behavior and help us to think of others with a
Catholic attitude and care for everyone around
us, in the classroom and out.
Come in and see what our class is all about!
