- Community Schools
The continued safety, well-being, and success of our students, teachers, staff, and community has always been our top priority as we navigate the complex and evolving coronavirus crisis. To this end, we are updating our reopening plan to begin the school year in a fully online-learning model for all students which will continue through the last week of September. All students in grades 1-12 will begin on August 18, kindergarten students will begin on August 20.
La seguridad continúa, el bienestar, y el éxito de nuestros estudiantes, maestros, empleados, y la comunidad siempre ha sido nuestra prioridad más importante a manera que enfrentamos la compleja y evolucionante crisis del coronavirus. Con este fin, estamos actualizando nuestro plan de reapertura para comenzar este año escolar en un modelo de instrucción completamente en línea para estudiantes hasta finales de septiembre. Hemos actualizado el calendario para que todos los estudiantes en los grados 1-12 comiencen el 18 de agosto, los estudiantes de jardin de infantes comenzarán el 20 de agosto.
Welcome to Third Grade! This year, students continue to build upon the foundation of K-2 grades in all subject areas. Students will be encouraged to expand upon this foundation through collaboration with peers, inquiry and analytical (or close) reading. They will continue to develop reading fluency and practice reading with expression. Students will have the opportunity to be creative, critical, and independent thinkers through inquiry based projects for each reading unit.
Our young writers will develop their writing of paragraph structure using multiple genres, including personal narratives, literary essays and research reports. In math, they will continue to expand on their mastery of place value and addition and subtraction with larger numbers. The math curriculum will develop their understanding of multiplication and division to 100, fractions, structure of arrays and area, describing and analyzing two-dimensional shapes. They will follow the scientific method as geologists, biologists, botanists, and engineers in our science curriculum.
Students will learn about their local government and town in our social studies lessons. They will even conduct their very own Town Hall meeting in downtown Frederick. Economics will come to life as students earn money, receive paychecks, visit the bank, and shop in our Third Grade Store. This will be an exciting year for all!
