All About Third Grade

   Welcome to Mrs. Loos’s Class!

In THIRD GRADE, students ‘read to learn’.

Through books and the internet, you will find students engaged in reading, writing, 

science, technology, engineering, art, math, and “travel the world”.

 We learn about ourselves and our family history, and we follow the rules to become

safe, responsible, and respectful citizens. 

We research and learn about inventors and famous Americans,

great leaders, authors, phases of the moon and countries

through many fun and interesting projects as  

“lifelong learners”.

Third Grade is great!  Let’s make this year the best one yet!!
