The wonderment of being inquisitive! A student’s joy of entering a classroom and knowing it is a place of inquiry and investigations, a place for personal improvement and growth in academic achievement! This picture represents our third grade classrooms. Our 3rd grade team works closely with each other as they share responsibilities for student learning. Our 3rd grade team knows that children have varying interests in their reading and very different abilities in their writing skills. And, to that with that focus, they create a program which allows for each child to excel.
Parents can often be seen helping these teachers bring learning alive through hands-on projects in cooking, science, understanding cultures, and more. Science, in third grade, is a focal point for our teachers. With the addition of technology to our school, it is expected that our students will utilize the skills they have acquired through direct computer instruction as they demonstrate their highest level of learning.
Students in our 3rd grade classrooms are interactive and engaged. Our teachers, again, take the caring and supportive philosophy of The Phoenix Schools, Private K-8, and exemplify this work. Likewise, they look to the students to continue learning about Life Skills, appropriate to their age and to advance their use of these critical life skills.
