THIRD GRADE: AIR CLASS
For students at Berkwood Hedge the third grade is a year of growth and change. Third graders are becoming more aware of themselves and how they appear to others. They are eager for independence and are beginning to move from concrete to more abstract thinking.
Third graders are active learners; cooperative group work, large collaborative projects, classroom discussions, and role-playing activities engage students as they develop critical thinking and listening skills.
Third graders enjoy real life problems and challenges. They are concerned with equity and fairness and use class meetings to resolve issues and build conflict resolution strategies. A class trip to Full Belly Farm in the springs helps build social bonds and an appreciation for the outdoors.
AIR class members are fluid like air. They move easily among the younger and older students at Berkwood Hedge.
