Welcome to Third Grade
Welcome to 3rd grade at Iowa Great Lakes Lutheran School! This year we will be learning many new things. In religion we will be exploring various topics including God’s Word, the Apostles Creed, and the Lord’s Prayer. In math, we will be working on improving our addition and subtraction skills as well as exploring multiplication, division, and fractions. We will be working to improve our reading and writing skills using The Next Steps to Guided Reading, VoWac for phonics, language, and writer’s workshop. We will be working on improving our accuracy, fluency, and comprehension as well as writing meaningful passages. In addition, we will be learning how to write in cursive. In science we will be exploring a variety of topics including force and motion, weather, and life cycles. In social studies our focus will be on learning about leaders in American history including George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. I am excited to begin this journey of learning!
