Vocabulary Acquisition and Use Show CCSS

Third graders are learning new vocabulary on a daily basis; some taught to students explicitly while other vocabulary is acquired on the student’s own.

Social-Emotional Learning

As learners grow, social and emotional skills help them develop healthy identities, manage emotions, achieve goals, practice empathy, build and maintain healthy relationships, and make responsible decisions.
