Welcome to Third Grade

Welcome to 3rd grade.  Your teachers this year are Mrs. Bueche and Mrs. Wylie.  Here you will find information and resources common to all 3rd grade students.

What we study:
Third grade is an exciting year as we transition from "learning to read" to "reading to learn".  "Reading to learn" is the skill all students will use throughout the rest of their school career and into college and careers.  Therefore, our units of study are designed to allow all students the opportunity to access a wealth of information by reading and analyzing what they read.
