Social Studies Field Trip

This week, Third Graders got to attend an exciting field trip to the South Carolina Historical Society Museum located in the fireproof building downtown. Ms. Knight guided students through South Carolina’s history from the Native Americans through the Civil War era. Students enjoyed interactive touch screen displays and a scavenger hunt to find out more information.



Third Grade has spent the week working on character studies in Reading Workshop. Students have discussed ways to get to know characters from patterns in behavior, speech, and predicting deeper theories as to why characters act and say the things they do. Students have been so excited to apply it to new characters as well as familiar friends.


Gullah Culture

This week, Third Grade had a special guest visitor who discussed Gullah culture in the Lowcountry. Cindy Makowsky stopped by with photos and sweetgrass baskets to explain the historical significance of the culture and its impact on the city of Charleston!
