The Third-Grade language arts program focuses on strengthening previously learned skills.学生将继续培养口语和默读技能, 理解, 预测, 词汇流畅, and making inferences through the use of a variety of children’s literature.包括标点符号的语法课, 资本化, 编辑, 词性是日常教学的一部分.拼写表每周分发一次.今年引进了草书.
Writing in the 三年级 begins with an exploration of various genres that students have enjoyed in the past including personal narratives and fiction.Students focus on the three elements of any story: character, setting, and plot.Students will analyze and learn to identify techniques authors use; question why they are important and make a conclusion about what they are reading.Development of the author’s craft will begin by incorporating the techniques learned from the author’s style in their own writing.The formation of a proper paragraph is enforced this year with a topic sentence, 支持细节和结束语.
我们的学生学会在日常生活中看到数学, 搜索模式, 数学过程, 和周围世界的数字. At all grade levels students learn that math is not an isolated subject and recognize connections between all their other classes.
Students begin exploring numbers and mathematical ideas with concrete materials, 图形表示的进展, 最后, 用符号抽象地推理. Our classes are structured in ways that encourage the use of a variety of manipulative materials, 适龄的技术, and games for students to construct their own meanings of key mathematical concepts. 通过灵活分组和差异化教学, we ensure that each child feels both competent and challenged during their elementary math classes. Students and teachers recognize that enduring learning takes time and practice but work together to efficiently master basic numerical facts to prepare for success in middle school mathematics and beyond.
三年级的时候, students deepen their understanding of multiplication and division as the relationship between these two mathematical properties is conceptually reinforced through grouping, 数组, 重复添加, 跳过计数.以十位和百位展开, four-digit numbers (thousands place) are introduced through familiar 数学过程. 金钱技巧有助于加强分数学习, as students begin to understand decimals as further representations of fractions.学生们学习使用标准的温度测量单位, 长度, 液体体积, and weight while solving problems involving measurement and estimation. Students develop a broader understanding of geometry while identifying properties of shapes and line segments and grow their algebraic sense by identifying missing numbers in addition and subtraction expressions and equations. 另外, students learn to solve problems involving the four operations and explain patterns in mathematics. 学习几何测量, students learn to recognize perimeter as an attribute of plane figures and distinguish between linear and area measurements as they learn to reason with shapes and their attributes.
三年级 science focuses on a more in-depth study of life science and earth science as well as study physical science. 一些单位将涵盖化石/动物遗传, 植物生命周期/遗传, 天气和气候以及力和运动. Students develop an understanding of how animals and their environments change through time. 化石为了解过去的动物和栖息地提供了一扇窗口. Analyzing the traits of animals provides evidence for how those traits vary, 它们是如何遗传的, 以及它们是如何随时间变化的. Students also examine how the environment can affect inherited traits and determine which animals will survive in a particular environment. In the Plant Life Cycle unit student discover how plants reproduce by exploring the process of pollination and fruiting. They also investigate how plant traits are inherited from parent plants and how favorable plant traits can be enhanced by humans via artificial selection. 天气单元, students investigate and make predictions about the weather through careful observation of clouds and wind. They will learn to differentiate between weather and climate and use models to reveal global climate patterns. Lastly in the Forces/Motion unit, students explore the forces all around them. 他们研究平衡力和不平衡力的作用, the pushes and pulls of bridge structures and the effects of friction.
Students also explore the power of magnetic forces and investigate firsthand how these forces can be used to help us in our everyday lives.
The Third-Grade studies continue their exploration of New York as they study immigration. They acquire much of their knowledge about immigration through non-fiction and historical fiction. Students learn why people wanted to leave their home countries (push factors) and why they chose to come to America (pull factors). Students will select a country from which their family immigrated for a research project to be presented to the class.
The class is infused with creativity and drama as they take on the lives and experiences of immigrants. 乘汽船横渡大洋需要做些什么? 埃利斯岛的检查是如何进行的? 他们在纽约的生活就像他们梦想的那样吗? 作为我们跨学科工作的一部分, students will create journals describing the voyage in steerage on a steamship, 正在埃利斯岛接受检查, 以及作为新移民在曼哈顿下城的生活. 学生将运用他们所学的知识, 通过文本和实地考察经验, 写一个现实主义的故事, 丰富的历史事实.
Third grade students will continue their journey of basic music theory in addition to performance on the handbells. 手铃唱诗班使用与钢琴相同的半音音阶, 但这更像是合奏乐器而不是独奏乐器. Handbell choirs require each musician to be responsible for one line of music, making the result sound like one instrument being performed by many. Students will learn to read this music and work together to act as an ensemble, 练习稳定的节奏, 动态水平, 表演技巧.
