Third Grade Teachers:
Welcome to the 3rd grade team. We will be focusing this year on reading, writing, science, social studies, and math. Our goal this year is to make sure each child achieves personal success in academics, social, and organizational skills they will need in order to be successful in following their dreams. Third grade is such a fun year and we will see much growth in reading, writing, and math. The students will focus hard on multiplication and division facts during math. For science this year students will explore more by having lots of hands-on experiences during whole and small group instruction. We’re very excited about your child embarking on this third grade journey with us and look forward to meeting them all!

The first month of school has flown by! We have all enjoyed having your students in our classes. October will be an exciting month in third grade. There will be no school on Oct. 8th and Oct. 15th. We will have Picture Day on Oct. 5th, Parent-Teacher

As we continue in our Reading classes, students will be asked to read for 20 minutes each night and write a summary of what they have read as part of their homework. Reading is a great way to help students work on their comprehension skills and encourage their love for reading.
This quarter in Social Studies we will focus on Geography. We will also practice handwriting skills. In math, we will continue to practice our multiplication, division and time. We will introduce rounding numbers to the nearest 10 and 100’s place. Please practice with your student at home. In Science, we will continue to learn about Motion and Matter. We will do experiments with Wheel-and-Axel Systems, Carts, and Solids and Liquids. For writing, students will be working on Narrative writing pieces.
