Grade Three

Independence in thought and action is becoming more evident in the third grader who is beginning to see him or herself transitioning from the ‘we’ to the ‘me’. Stories of courage and determination of the ancient Hebrew people finding home are embraced by the third grade child who is beginning to feel a strong departure from how they’ve sensed themselves in the world for their first eight years. Meaningful and practical work including gardening, cooking and construction helps to develop the child’s relationship to self and Earth. These practical arts require the development of measurement, which carries forth into math lessons along with weights and time. Multiple learning modalities are engaged giving all different kinds of learners routes to successful comprehension and daily the children have the opportunity to work both independently and in groups.
