Welcome Students & Parents!

Hi 3rd Grade Families! Welcome to third grade!!! My name is Amy Winner. I have been teaching for 12 years, and this is my 5th year teaching 3rdgrade. I have my Elementary Education degree from Westminster College and my Master’s in Teaching and Curriculum from Penn State University. I love spending time with my husband (Andy), daughter (Aila), and son (Archie). Third grade is a GREAT year!!!

Highlights of the 3rd Quarter

Highlights of 3rd Quarter:

We will be studying fractions and measurement throughout the third nine weeks.  We then move into geometry.

In reading, the students will continue the Daily 5 system.  While students are doing this I am working with small groups conducting guided reading groups where we are focusing on skills differentiated according to student need.  Some of the skills include comprehension, back up and reread, using graphic aids, author’s purpose, cause/effect, compare and contrast, prefixes and suffixes, theme, following directions, fluency, and accuracy.  This quarter we will target these skills within our weekly reading passages in our Storytown books.

In grammar, the students will work on adjectives, articles, and action verbs.  We will also be fine tuning open ended response writings. 

In Science, we will be studying Changes to Earth’s Surface and People and Resources.
