Third grade is a year of tremendous academic and social growth, curiosity, and independence that grows by leaps and bounds. Children gain self-confidence in their academic abilities as they take on increasing responsibility for their learning. As a result of this increased self-confidence, third graders become much more independent than they were in previous years.

I invite you to explore our website, and become familiar with our classroom and the third grade curriculum. Parents, please consider making our class page a bookmark/favorite for your child, so they can easily access the great websites on the Just for Kids page, which will reinforce their learning. Copies of our weekly newsletter, The Watering Hole, and other forms can be found on the File Cabinet page. Be sure to follow our class on Twitter for daily blurbs telling what we did that day, and to see pictures taken that day.
