Welcome to third grade! Third grader is a year that transitions a child from the primary years to being a more sophisticated intermediate student. Third grade students can expect to further develop a passion for reading while reading longer, more challenging books. In addition to previously acquired math skills, student learning will focus on multiplication, division, and fractions. Science will find students working with plants and exploring the physics of sound. A highlight of third grade is learning write in cursive. Third grade is loaded with fun and engaging learning opportunities - welcome aboard!
