    General Information:

    Reading: Reading instruction is every day. Reading will take place within our classroom. The third grade will be using the leveled readers, as part of our comprehensive balanced literacy program. During our reading time we will also be doing independent reading, literature and word studies, read aloud activities, and writing activities.

    Math: In third grade we will continue addition, subtraction, money and fractions, but with larger numbers.We will also be working on telling time, reading graphs and charts, geometry, multiplication and division.

    Social Studies: This year will have a focus on map skills, communities and regions of the world. We will begin with North America (geography, economics, history), and continue with China and Brazil.

    Science: We will be focusing on questioning and scientific exploration through the use of experiments and research.

    ELA: We will be exploring different types of writing(narractive, expository, persuasive), poetry, fiction and non-fiction.There is also a strong focus on grammar and spelling skills.

     Snack: We have snack everyday. Please provide your child with a healthy snack daily. Please do not send candy as a snack. (*Due to various food allergies, please do not send in a "birthday snack" on your child's birthday for the entire class. Birthdays are important, but do not require food. The student will be acknowledged by the principal and classroom teacher on their special day.)
