Third Grade News

Welcome back to a growing, thriving campus where we are constructing our new MPR, and making dreams come true through education!

 In Language and literacy, third graders will develop a much better handle on what to do when they don't understand a word or passage.  They look at pictures and back up and re-read for clues and ask themselves questions.  Students will learn how to summarize and use graphs to organize their thoughts about the books they read and will examin a variety of genres and print forms such as newspapers, magazines, and Web sites. Learning multiplication facts is the big push this year!

In writing, third graders will learn to use organizational methods like word webs and Venn diagrams to help them in more complex writing assignments.  They will be asked to compare and contrast things and take more responsibility for the writing process, including revising, editing, and proofreading. 

Math becomes more challenging in third grade but we will tackle it together .  Students will work with larger whole numbers (numbers like 3,000) and with fractions and decimal numbers.  They will look at odd and even numbers and patterns and solve and explaine addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division problems and even some problems with more than one step!

Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of your student's life!
