• English Language Arts (ELA)

    All materials we use in class are aligned with the Common Core State Standards.

    Our reading block is 90 minutes long.  The first 30 minutes is a whole-group lesson introducing and reviewing reading strategies, spelling, vocabulary, and grammar skills of the week.  Then, the rest of the ELA block is dedicated to small learning centers.  

    Our 3rd grade topics will further develop concepts taught in 2nd grade, as well as introduce many new concepts.
