What's going on in 3rd Grade?
Students are developing an understanding of the use and features in Google Classroom. Since we use this platform in grades 3-5, learning the functionalities and forming good work habits is essential.
As students move into the second half of the year, they will be introduced to Google Docs, Google Slides, Google Sheets, as well as, continue to develop learning how to use Google Classroom to manage their assignments and communicate with their teachers. Students will continue to develop research skills and learn to collaborate on the same document. Students are practicing using the homerow when they type and increasing words typed per minute. In grades K-2 the focus has been on proper hand position. In grade 3, students begin to learn about speed and accuracy when they type.
The 3rd graders have asked to learn coding, so the last 5 weeks of school we will begin coding using the program Scratch.
