3rd Grade

About 3rd Grade

Third grade is an exciting year at Saint Ann!  This year, your child will move beyond “learning to read” and will begin “reading to learn” and will start reading more for pleasure.  Your third grader should enter third grade reading fluently and with comprehension.  They will begin learning how to use a more formalized writing process of drafting, editing, and finalizing.  In math, your child will learn the multiplication tables, how to tell time to the minute and how to solve problems with fractions.  Your child will take tests on a regular basis, in each subject.  To help with assessments, we work on study skills, at home and at school, throughout the year.  Most of our third graders received the Sacrament of First Communion last spring.  We celebrate the Eucharist together every Friday morning, at our weekly children’s masses.
