Third Grade


Heather Freund

Welcome to Third Grade!

Third grade is an exciting year of learning and growing! The students learn about rocks, minerals, fossils, animals, plants, the water cycle, and more in science. One of the main focuses in math is learning both multiplication and division facts. The students also learn about perimeter, area, three digit addition and subtraction, etc.

Communication arts is filled with reading a variety of stories, reviewing those stories to improve comprehension, and getting a better grasp of the written language by studying grammar and writing. In social studies the students learn about being a good citizen, the three branches of the government, and map skills by sending out a flat version of themselves, similar to the book, Flat Stanley.

In religion the students expand the knowledge they learned in second grade about Reconciliation and Eucharist. One of the most important parts of religion for third graders is being given more responsibility at Mass by having various Mass roles. The students are trained to serve, song lead, and do the readings and responses!
