Thank you for visiting our website. Third grade is a transitional year. By this age we begin to expect children to become independent readers and thinkers. They move away from learning to read into reading to learn. We strive to make the journey a smooth and rewarding one.
The children are provided with many opportunities to complete problem solving tasks, hands-on activities, and projects. The curriculum is enhanced with at least two field trips each year. Also, the children are introduced to Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective Children in which they develop leadership skills and learn to think about the choices they make.
Students learn science concepts that include weather and climate, forces and motion, animal and plant adaptations, and animal and plant heredity. In Social Studies, the investigate the history, geography, economics, and civics of the State of Michigan.
