This is going to be an exciting year!  I am looking forward to learning and growing by leaps and bounds!   

Some learning highlights in third grade are:

  • learning to use our laptops to build technology skills, practice for computerized testing and utilize online learning tools
  • studying hard to prepare for the first year of state assessments, focusing strongly on becoming proficient readers and solidifying strong math skills
  • experimenting with many science skills
  • exploring social studies with a focus on communities and current events
  • Throw in a little cursive handwriting and accelerated reading and anyone can see we are extremely busy learners!
