Welcome to Third Grade!
In third grade, students learn and grow every day! They participate in a variety of learning experiences and are challenged to become the best students they can be. In language arts, students participate in reading and writing workshops to develop their reading comprehension and fluency as well as written expression and editing skills. In math, our students focus on applying their addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division skills to real-life problem-solving scenarios. They apply their scientific critical thinking skills while learning about animal life processes, Earth cycles, soil, and simple machines. Students have hands-on experience with Earth cycles when they go on our annual Udvar-Hazy Air and Space Museum field trip! In social studies, ancient cultures come alive as students learn what life was like in ancient Egypt, China, Greece, Rome, and Mali. Across all content areas, our third graders use technology, critical thinking skills, problem-solving, and collaborative learning to grow as learners.
