      Welcome to 3rd grade!  We are looking forward to a great year of learning!

    We're planning on an exciting year of growth and learning. In Social Studies, we'll be learning about Native Americans
    of the Pacific Northwest. In Science we'll be utilizing the new TCI curriculum, four new units of study at third grade
    which includes raising butterflies! In our Writers' Workshop, third graders will continue to develop their writing skills,
    respondingto reading and writing fiction, nonfiction, and opinion pieces.  Reading is key in all subject areas.
    Third grade scholars will continue to build reading stamina and work on fluency and comprehension goals.
    Houghton Mifflin's Math Expressions Common Core edition is the basis for our math program. Each year we enjoy
    fostering the abilities of a wide range of mathematicians. 
     
     At Island Park...We are developing a compassionate, innovative, collaborative community of learners prepared
    to access and contribute to the ever-changing global and digital world.
