3rd Grade Team

3rd Grade Team

Third grade is a pivotal year of social and academic growth. In order to support this growth, third grade focuses on the GSES Habits of a Scholar and critical thinking skills. We encourage self-reflection through debriefing, student created portfolios, and student-led conferences. Students work towards mastery in all academic areas. In math, the focus is on multiplication and division, fractions, and place value. For literacy, students will read and study fiction, nonfiction, and poetry with an emphasis on text supported answers. In writing, every student has the opportunity to publish multiple pieces of high quality work in a variety of writing styles. Students will explore learning through personal narratives, informational and expository paragraphs, opinion writing, and poetry. Social studies is a time for third graders to investigate their community, government, and economics. Being in such an amazing valley, we are able to incorporate the exploration of our community and surrounding areas into our studies. Through fieldwork and experiments we dig deep into a rock unit, hike through the past, ski through the states of matter, and examine and explore the life cycle of animals. Our goal is for every student to leave third grade a lifelong learner!

Habits of a Scholar

At GSES, we know that there is a relationship between our “habits” of work and learning and student achievement. Practicing our five habits help us to “do our best” and “be our best” in school and life every day.  

GSES Habits of a Scholar

Enthusiasm and Wonder: I can be excited and curious about learning and working with others. 

Teamwork: I can work with others to achieve a common goal.

Compassion: I can care for myself and others.

Responsibility: I can be trusted to make good choices.

Determination: I can stick to a challenge even though it may be difficult.
