At St. John Lutheran School, the 3rd grade students learn that God always loves them and takes care of them. Secure in this knowledge, they learn to take on more independence and responsibility in their school work and relationships. Third graders learn through whole group instructions, small group cooperative learning, hands-on activities, songs, movement, and independent work.
The 3rd grade classroom is safe, supportive, and welcoming. School days are filled with learning in challenging and fun ways. Some new concepts that are learned in 3rd grade are multiplication, fractions, communities around the world, the solar system, and sound. Third graders build on the literacy foundation learned in previous years, and continue to learn how to treat each other with God's love.
