The third grade is an exciting year! Here at Glebe, third-grade students participate in learning experiences that encourage discovery-based learning. Throughout the year, third graders will take part in challenging units, hands-on learning centers, independent projects, and exciting field trips. All of these experiences are aimed at helping students enrich and broaden their understandings as they make cross-curricular connections.
The third-grade year is such a big year in your child’s Elementary school career. Students become much more independent this year as they will be expected to expand their previous knowledge in order to develop new conceptual understandings. Students will engage in content-based activities such as place value, multiplication, division, fractions, data, probability, and geometry in Math. In Language Arts, students will engage in word study, learn valuable reading strategies, participate in guided reading sessions, and develop their writing using tried and true developmental writing methods. As scientists, students will learn about animal adaptations, ecosystems and human impact, simple machines, the water cycle, and soil. In Social Studies, students will learn about civics, economics, geography, and ancient civilizations.
We look forward to an awesome school year with you!
