Grade 3

Welcome to Grade 3!  As students begin to explore reading in depth, they look for meaning across texts and begin asking themselves questions to help them gain a better understanding.  Reading becomes more personal and independent.  They study nonfiction, fictional narrative, mysteries, and biographies.  The volume of their writing begins to increase as they focus on many different genres in Writing Workshop. Students continue to learn the conventions of writing and consistently applying them to daily writing.  They use problem solving as they explore multiplication, fractions, place value, measurement, and data in Math.  In Science, they learn about properties of matter, plant and animal adaptations, recycling, and rocks and minerals.  In Social Studies, students learn map skills, continents, and oceans.  It is a year of learning and fun!
