3rd Grade News


In preparation for Student Led Conferences, Third Graders spent the week working on Self Assessment in their own writing. Third Graders were able to point out so many of the areas in which they have improved throughout the year. Some of the growth students talked about included neatness of handwriting, editing skills, and their storytelling abilities. We are so lucky to get to watch all of them grow as students.


In reading this week, Third Graders worked on identifying cause and effect. Students used Asian animal texts to look for examples. Third Grade was so excited to continue to build on their research skills while taking notes of problems for their endangered animal study, as well as solutions. 

Social Studies

Third Graders spent the week putting the final touches on their Asia Study Presentations. Students wrapped up speeches, built artifacts, placed their topics on a timeline, and finished painting our class model of China. Students even made some time for additional art projects to be included in our presentation. We are so proud of all of the hard work Third Graders have put into our Asia study this trimester!
