Your third grader is becoming more independent and curious about the world and their role in it. At the same time, this growing sense of self may be accompanied by a feeling of separation and perhaps even loneliness. Our third grade curriculum helps your child navigate this pivotal developmental year of identity formation. We study creation stories that mirror an awakening to the human condition. And we introduce a wide range of solutions to human problems- farming, gardening, cooking, measuring, telling time, building shelters and weaving all help your child discover a new sense of self-reliance.
