Third Grade

Third Grade will meet Tuesdays. We will be learning how to formulate meaningful questions using a tool called Think Trix and can use it across subjects.

One main goal of Advanced Studies is to develop their abilities to think globally.

We will begin the year with beginning to think about children around the world. How are we the same? How are we different? 

We will focus on the student first then move outward. What do I need? What do we all need? Why should people in America care about people in other countries? How and why should we take care of the Earth? How is everything connected?

For science-related background development, we will use Kids Discover online and the Magic School Bus series.

I use centers and games for logical reasoning, spatial development, mathematical thinking, critical thinking, imaginations and cooperative learning. 

I use stories and activities to encourage empathy and kindness.

Throughout the year, students will have opportunities to research topics and lead class discussions. We will talk about reputable news resources and note language designed to influence our opinions.
