Third Grade

Our third grade is a community of learners who enjoy working together. Our curriculum starts with the building of a peaceable classroom community where children interact with other in a respectful and empowering way. It involves integrating mutual respect, responsibility, safety, trust, and cooperation into all aspects of the classroom.Studying Math

We follow the district curriculum and state standards for English Language Arts and Mathematics. Our students enjoy reading different genres of literature to further develop their comprehension skills through the Reading Workshop model. As writers, our students write daily across the curriculum focusing on organization and developing ideas through elaboration and use of voice. In Mathematics, students build an understanding of concepts, develop operational fluency, analyze number sequences, and conduct their own data investigations for data analysis. Our science units include plant growth and development, rocks and minerals and habitats utilizing kits. Our social studies units covers the study of the history of Cambridge and the early history of Boston.

Some special events for our grade include visits from the Cambridge Historical Society, our field trips to The Old South Meeting House, Paul Revere's House, Plimouth Plantation Harvard Museum of Natural History and our annual camping trip to Cape Cod Sea Camp.
