Third Grade News


Third Graders wrapped up their first writing unit! They have completed their narrative writing and celebrated with a publishing party where everyone shared their story about a moment in their lives that they remember. Third Grade scholars took turns reading their stories to First Graders.Scholars are now focusing on persuasive writing. We can’t wait to dig deeper into this type of writing !


As we headed into our nonfiction unit on Reading to Learn, students learned to look for clues and knowledge as they learned more and more from their new books. Students were able to learn so many things from reading pennies and ask questions that they still had after reading them. We discovered that books are not the only types of nonfiction writing in the world!


Third Grade scholars started a new math unit this week. Students are learning all about area. Scholars are working on finding the area of rectangles and triangles. Our mathematicians used tile blocks to determine the area of drawn out shapes. Stay tuned to watch your scholar learn more about area!
