Third grade has been buzzing with productive work in all areas of the curriculum. In math, we have finished our study of fractions and will move on to our final unit of the year, decimals, over the next few days. While in social studies, our exploration of Canada is coming to a close. The students are currently researching a province in the country and constructing a guide about it as their final project. We will conclude the year with a look at Australia.
The biography presentations were a tremendous success a few weeks ago. Pictures of this event can be found on the school’s Instagram account. It was lovely to have a chance to chat casually with each of you at that time. A special thank you to each parent for helping to make this project possible.
On Wednesday, May 16th, the third grade (along with students in grades PK-2) will travel to Kennedy Park in Lenox to celebrate Mountain Day. The children have learned about the history of the area and will have an opportunity to visit the site of the former Aspinwall Hotel. We will leave campus at 10 am and return around 1:00 pm. Please make sure your child has the following items:
- A snack and a lunch.
- Appropriate outdoor attire, as we will be walking in the woods.
- Sneakers/hiking boots
- A towel to sit on at lunch.
