I like OLGC because it teaches me about God. I also like that I can make a lot of new friends. I also like that everyone is nice and everyone is loving. - 3rd grade student

Curriculum Highlights:

Welcome to 3rd Grade!

While studying simple machines, each student creates a compound machine using at least two simple machines. Creations have consisted of cereal dispensers, catapults, and machines that moved objects and cars using pulleys and inclined planes. The children enjoy sharing their creations with their peers.

The students then visit Colvin Run Mill to see simple machines in real action. They watch simple machines at work in the barn and learned how farmers got their products to the general store.

For All Saints' Day, each 3rd grader chooses a saint to research. The children write a report to present to their classmates and they wear a costume to represent their saint and wear it for our All Saints' Day Mass. 

In social studies the children grow in their map skills by reading and analyzing various types of maps. We learn the states and the capitals of the United States region by region as the children also are assigned a state to research. State Fair Day is the culmination of learning about the United States. The children learn about one state and help the school learn about it as well, by decorating a tri-fold board, a diorama, and more! The children enjoy sharing their studies with the school. 

In mathematics the third graders focus on learning their multiplication and division facts. Fractions are also a highlight of 3rd grade math curriculum.

The children enjoy growing in their reading skills through small group rotations and in-class book clubs.  3rd grade is also the year the children begin writing more intensely in cursive.
