Reading:  Third grade teachers will be teaching the students many comprehension strategies to use before, during, and after reading.  These strategies include making connections, predicting, visualizing, questioning, summarizing, making inferences, and evaluating.  We also will focus on strengthening reading fluency and expanding vocabulary knowledge through the reading of poems, trade books, and leveled guided reading groups.                                              

Language Arts:   Our students will continue to learn and practice applying the components of a good 3rd grade sentence (capital letter at the beginning, punctuation at the end, and logical meaning).  A personal narrative and an expository are two specific writings we will focus on, as well as many other creative stories.

Math: In Math this year, the students will begin reviewing and expanding their knowledge of place value.  Other new concepts will be addition and subtraction of larger numbers, elapsed time, making change, multiplication, division, and fractions.

Science and Social Studies:  Third graders have the benefit of learning with all four third-grade teachers through “Team Teaching”.  Some of our most exciting units are Ancient Greece, Rome, and Mali, Explorers, Simple Machines, Earth Cycles, and Animal Habitats! 

Our energetic third graders will participate for their first time in Standards of Learning testing in May.  They will get to SHOW WHAT THEY KNOW! 

We look forward to working with each student to help ensure success, as we journey through the third grade!
