We are so enjoying this group of inquisitive, enthusiastic third graders! They have been both working hard and having fun at school. This is our October learning update. You can find a new update here every month and periodic posts in between. Below, you will find some information about third grade at Riverton School.
We follow the Riverton School expectations: Be safe - Be respectful - Be responsible - Be cooperative. Students can receive a "green ticket" from any teacher when they are caught following these expectations. When a student collects 100 green tickets, they are recognized by the whole school. The third graders have been collecting many green tickets!
There is no homework in third grade. Students are participating in rich learning experiences all day at school. In place of homework, we hope students have quality family time with healthy activities such as playing games, reading books, and enjoying the outdoors.
Third graders work to make plans in their writing notebooks before drafting narratives.
We are so excited to be back and begin another year of learning!!! ... The first few days of school have been loads of fun. We have reviewed and practiced school expectations as well as created our own list grade level "Must Do's" for a successful year of learning. Today we practiced switching classrooms and are ready for the real deal on Tuesday! Have a restful weekend!
