Mathematics, Social Studies, and Science
Our third graders now “read to learn“, rather than “learn to read”. They write book projects as well as examine parts of speech thoroughly. Third graders use nonfiction books to complete research for social studies projects such as presidential trading cards and state fun facts. Social studies plays a significant role in the curriculum this year. In math, third graders work as “math detectives” to problem solve, learning how to use their math skills to determine necessary steps to find a solution.
Our fourth and firth grade students demonstrate even greater independence and responsibility. They take part in their first overnight school camping trip where the students study the environment and sharpen their team building skills. They work on their first research paper using a cross curricular approach to research. Additionally they participate in Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D. A. R. E.) as part of their health education.
