Third grade uses the Responsive Classroom model which focuses on social and emotional learning and growth for student academic learning and discipline. Student input and choice is put first during our learning experiences. The goal is to create a safe, fun, and engaging environment where students learn to collaborate with their peers as teammates. 3rd graders have 1:1 Google Chromebooks. This technology is used daily to access a wide variety of texts, practice typing skills, and learn computer coding among other online learning programs.
