|Welcome to 3rd Grade!!|
|Our third grade team is dedicated to teaching all subjects to all students through each different learning style- visual, auditory, and tactile. We help to create well rounded children that will someday shape our future.
The students learn life long reading skills such as finding the main idea, using context clues, inference, distinguishing fact and opinion, and different genres. We do our best to create lifelong readers.
In math we learn using manipulative, short videos, and fun hands-on activities. We learn lifelong skills such as 2 digit addition and subtractions, multiplication, telling time, reading a graph, number and time lines, and word problems. We teach and reteach as needed so each student gets the opportunity to master every objective.
In social studies we learn about the make up and the importance of communities. We then take the opportunity to explore other communities through the internet and letters we have written and received from various places. The students enjoy creating a binder with information learned about different communities and other regions in the United States.
In science we create a journal in which the students recreate information learned from previous lessons and class experiments. We learn about lab safety, measuring with different units, classifying matter, states of matter, magnetism, the solar system, natural resources, living organisms and their environments, adaptations of plants and animals, and inherited traits.
