Third Grade Social Curriculum

Academic and social learning go hand in hand. We believe that all children want to learn and can learn. We create a climate of belonging, significance, and fun. The class works together to create the classroom rules and guidelines for working in pairs, small groups, and as a whole class. Throughout the school year, we create a community where children learn to problem-solve with each other. Students have opportunities to share their work, make choices about their learning, and work with their peers in cooperative groups. We believe that academic success is directly related to students’ social development throughout the school year.
