Third grade is a time when students start to gain more independence in all academic areas. The students continue to strengthen their Catholic faith as we learn about the liturgical calendar and parts of the mass. Literacy is also the main component of our day. Students work in large groups, and small guided reading groups. In math, students master two-digit addition and subtraction and are introduced to multiplication! Science the students will learn many things about the solar system, life cycles, and force and motion just to name a few. They will have fun projects and experiments to do along the way. We also dive into communities and government during social studies.
Homework assignments will be given each day except Friday. The students will write their homework assignments in their planners each day. The homework assignments will usually be reading (with a response and reading log), spelling and occasionally math. Please check your child’s planner each night for assignments!
