The third grade focuses on responsibility, first and foremost. In Religion, we receive reconciliation twice a year and continue to emphasize Christian, Catholic values. Academically, we focus on basic math facts including addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, and we also work on our handwriting, both print and cursive. In English Language Arts, the development of reading for pleasure in chapter books is stressed and by the end of the year students' love for books will increase along with vocabulary and comprehension.
