Our team welcomes you to THIRD GRADE!! Third grade is an important year for our students. We are thrilled to see our students grow as thoughtful readers and writers! They explore new concepts in science and social studies. In math, we use many "hands-on" activities in order to better understand addition and subtraction, as well as to help students learn the "new" operations of multiplication and division. Problem-solving is not only essential in math, but is our goal for all subject areas. Challenging STEM projects integrate science, technology, engineering, and math, and allow students to implement their problem-solving strategies. Indeed, a lot of learning takes place in third grade, but learning how to think is the skill we want our students to carry with them when they leave us.
