3rd Grade

Welcome to Third Grade

3dIn third grade, students are now truly beginning to read to learn! It is such an exciting grade for students as they not only will be listening to some core knowledge language arts, but will also be diving deeper into chapter readers that extend their listening comprehension. For example, third graders will have the opportunity to become experts in many areas. A few of these exciting areas are: animal classification, space, the human body, and ecology! Other fabulous areas of learning in our curriculum include, but are not limited to: Ancient Rome, The Viking Age, and Native Americans.

In addition to the language arts curriculum, third graders will become masters of basic multiplication, simple and equivalent fractions, and will apply their mathematical skills to solving real world word problems.

Along the way, the third graders will be creatively designing, constructing, and presenting hands-on projects that will deepen their learning of lifelong skills!

Born and raised in Chicago, I moved to Colorado as soon as I could! I attended Colorado State University and earned a Bachelor’s of Science in Child Development. I received my teacher’s license through the Boces program. When my son started second grade, I started working as a 5th grade teacher here at MSES. After 10 years at 5th grade, I switched to 3rd grade, and have enjoyed it more every year. Every day I am thankful to get to work in a classroom with such energized, enthusiastic, kind and quite fun students. It is my hope to model for them a love of learning through a high trust relationship in a safe and dynamic classroom. Third graders are like sponges, and their positivity is contagious. I am lucky to be here at MSES, supporting them through their educational journey.
