The goal for 3rd Grade is to create a safe learning environment and for each of my students to reach their fullest potential. My favorite thing about my 3rd Grade class is watching my students master a skill that they have worked so hard to complete.
In 3rd Grade, our class starts to read novel books. For some, this is their first time reading novels. This year our class has read Lions at Lunchtime, The One and Only Ivan, and Because of Winn Dixie. Students have completed book reports after reading their novels.
Another project we will do in class is Phases of the Moon. The objective is for students to learn and identify Phases of the Moon through a variety of hands-on activities, including making their own moon diagram and cookie moons.
