Third Grade

Shanna Clark |

In third grade, students develop independence, as well as organization and study skills. To meet the needs of each student, a variety of instructional techniques are used including hands-on activities, and large and small group instruction. Technology is also integrated in instruction as well as through projects. Students take their reading skills a step farther in “reading to learn” instead of “learning to read”.  Students read a variety of reading genres to help them develop a love for reading. Developing writing skills and writing across content areas is emphasized. Students go beyond their basic math facts by focusing on multiplication and division. In religion, a deeper understanding of the seven sacraments and the marks of the Catholic Church are taught. The students learn to use their talents to serve others and spread The Good News. The students grow academically, physically and spiritually.
