3rd grade is where scholars make the switch from learning to read to reading to learn. In third grade, we embark on learning how other students get their education around the world and write an informational essay about the different countries. We conduct novel studies on Peter Pan and Because of Winn Dixie and develop thesis statements about character changes throughout the story. We begin using our addition and subtraction skills to help us develop multiplication and division skills. We solve two-step word problems involving all four equations and can prove our answer is correct by using a variety of strategies. We are so excited for you to join the 3rd-grade team and read to explore the world around you.
