Welcome to 3rd Grade at St. James Elementary School!
An exciting and new experience awaits you in 3rd Grade. Third graders are transitioning from primary students to elementary students this year. With that transition comes some new and exciting changes. Students will be using a daily agenda to copy homework assignments and important dates and reminders. This will also be a year where students receive actual letter grades in the subject areas.
Students will continue to work on multiplication facts, as well as additional math topics. Social Studies will be an exciting journey covering the geographic regions of South Carolina , The First South Carolinians, The American Revolution, The Civil War, The Great Depression, and completing the journey with Civil Rights and the New Deal. Science will be amazing as we study matter, rocks and minerals, habitats, and motion and sound. We will read a variety of fiction and nonfiction texts, and write all types of responses and writing samples.
There is no doubt that we will be busy learning and growing in 3rd grade!
