The third grade at Whitt Elementary is the place to be! Education is student centered. We focus on active learning, research, hands-on activities, and extending thinking skills. Technology and using the internet are a priority. Students are learning word processing skills, Kid Pix, and Power Point presentations. Keyboarding, using software such as Math Keys, and curriculum related web sites are an integral part of technology instruction. Blogging and the use of Promethean Boards also happens!!
Some of the goals that we would like to see the students in third grade accomplish are: Have a strong respect for themselves, other students, and authority figures Have self-discipline Learn to be responsible Learn to use time effectively, develop organizational skills, and become confident learners. The 3rd Grade team is a grade level that team teaches. Your child will benefit from the instruction of 2 highly qualified teachers!
