Third grade has always been referred to as big transition year. First of all, students are asked to read and write considerably more and at a higher level... more reading to learn than learning to read. Also, children must master their subtraction facts during the first half of the year only to be introduced to both multiplication and division by midyear (it is assumed that they already know their addition facts). Furthermore, science and social studies tests are heavy on content and require home study a week in advance. In addition to all of this, students are learning a whole new way to write- cursive! These changes can be very exciting, and students tend to enjoy the change of pace, not to mention the challenge. We hope this is the case for each and every individual. To help you out along the way, please take note of the link to our monthly curriculum newsletter. You can use this to stay on top of what we are doing and help your children achieve their best. Should there be any questions, please feel free to contact us at school.
