During third grade we learn to be more independent. It is the first year we use our own bibles and daily planners. We enjoy learning through a variety of projects. Some activities 3rd graders enjoy include: digging into their family history, using the computer to create presentations , creating poetry books, hosting a wax museum and budgeting their money during our daily mini-economy. Every day begins with student led devotions.
Third graders consistently practice becoming good readers and writers. Reading requires many thinking skills – drawing conclusions, creating inferences, making connections, asking themselves questions. They will learn the steps to creating their first research paper and also write a biography on a famous person.
Daily fact practice helps set the groundwork for more math skills as students work towards solving more difficult and longer math problems.
Students realize that God created us as unique individuals. We celebrate these differences by working in groups and practicing Christian sportsmanship through games and recess activities.

I love watching students become more independent learners and take ownership of their own learning. Plus they still like to give me hugs!
