Third Grade

Third Grade at St. Mary’s marks the second half of the Lower School experience.  Students focus on both the community in which they live, as well as communities around the world.  They continue the learning process of relying on themselves as they are striving to become independent thinkers and learners. In addition to content based and individual choice books, students will read two class novels, Kensuke’s Kingdom and Little House on the Prairie. Mathematics in the Third Grade continues to expand on number and numeration, operations and computations, data and chance, geometry, measurement, reference frames, patterns, functions and algebra.
