THIRD GRADE CURRICULUM

Third Grade is a year for growing and new learning experiences!
   Religion: Faith in God is fostered by exploring the miracles and parables of Jesus. Children are encouraged to use their God-given talents to know, love and serve God and their community. Students learn about the lives of various Saints and how they lived their lives in service to the Lord.
   Math: Students learn to add & subtract, and multiply with larger numbers (with and without regrouping). It's time to learn all those multiplication facts, as children earn ice cream scoops for mastering each fact. Our students begin work with long division, and they strengthen those time and money skills. 
   Reading: In Third Grade, reading fluency and comprehension are promoted as children explore author's purpose, summarizing, and using context clues to be strong readers. Students learn important Grammar and Spelling skills and practice editing sentences daily. 
   Creative Writing Time allows students to put into practice the writing process while using good grammar, punctuation and paragraph form when expressing themselves in writing. Students write personal narratives, descriptive and informative paragraphs. It is also the first time for many students to learn how to organize and present a written and oral report.
   Handwriting: Third Graders work hard at learning and writing in Cursive Handwriting. Letters are perfected, along with writing words, sentences and paragraphs in great form.
    Social Studies: Classroom study focuses on types of communities and those who live and work there. Third Grade also learns about land features, such as climate and resources, which help them to classify different landforms. A favorite time of the week is TEAM time, when students work in small cooperative groups to complete learning tasks.
   Science: In science time, seeing is believing! Students learn about various forms of energy, sound and light and participate in numerous hands-on experiments.
