Shining Third Graders !!!

Asia Presentation  

This week, Third Graders were thrilled to present the final product of their Asia Study. They have been working hard for the past few weeks, researching, constructing, and learning about Chinese culture to share with their families. The school library was a showcase for all things Asia, representing the many aspects of this study and the students’ artwork. Third Graders then shared their speeches about their values, beliefs and what they learned about culture. We were ecstatic to share our culture tree with you all. They did an amazing job and showed such maturity and poise in their presentations.


This week in math scholars dove into fractions. Scholars have been enjoying this new unit so far. Scholars were able to partition paper strips into halves, fourths, eighths, thirds and sixths. Third graders were able to understand how non-unit fractions are made out of unit fractions. We can’t wait to dig deeper into fractions with our class. 

Read Aloud

Third Grade began our next read-aloud this week, When the Sea Turned to Silver by Grace Lin. This read-aloud is a direct sequel to our previous read-aloud “Where the Mountain Meets the Moon.” It not only follows the same family but wraps up a few loose ends from that story. Third graders are enjoying this read-aloud so much so far!lo
