What is special about Third Grade?

  • Third grade teachers team teach which allows them to focus more directly on specific instruction for your third grader. We collaborate weekly to determine best practices that will not only engage your child but promotes proficiency of State Standards. We create meaningful opportunities for students to collaborate through various instructional strategies on a daily basis. A strong emphasis is also put on organizational and time-management skills. Special learning experiences include a visit to the planetarium in Chapel Hill, a chance to relive the history of NC at Oak View Historic park in Raleigh, and an interactive economy unit developed and taught by Junior Achievement volunteers.
