About our Third Grade Groups:

In our weekly groups we will:


  • build confidence and develop a love of math and reading. 

  • review, practice and extend what students are learning in their third grade classroom. 

  • learn to monitor comprehension, ask questions and make connections while reading. 

  • build comprehension skills through drawing conclusions, inferencing, finding main idea and details, summarizing and identifying text features in both fiction and nonfiction texts. 

  • develop a stronger vocabulary working with prefixes/suffixes, synonyms/antonyms, multiple meaning words and context clues. 

  • develop the essential building blocks for a stronger math foundation with a focus on number sense, place value, automaticity with math facts, fractions, patterns and tables, geometry, measurement, mathematical reasoning and financial literacy. 

  • develop strategies for attacking multi-step word problems. 

  • learn in a fun, safe and encouraging environment.
