Grade 3

Welcome to Grade 3!

We are delighted to welcome you and your child to Grade 3, where learning is an adventure waiting to unfold! At East Lake School, we are committed to providing a supportive and enriching environment where every student can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally.

What to Expect in Grade 3

Grade 3 is an exciting year filled with growth, exploration, and new challenges. Our dedicated teachers create a welcoming classroom atmosphere where students feel valued, encouraged, and empowered to explore their interests and expand their horizons. Here's what your child can look forward to in Grade 3:

  • Literacy: Building upon foundational skills, students will deepen their reading comprehension, writing proficiency, and communication abilities through engaging literature, writing projects, and literacy activities.
  • Numeracy: Math concepts come to life as students delve into addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, geometry, and problem-solving in interactive and hands-on ways.
  • Science: From investigating the properties of matter to exploring ecosystems and the solar system, students will embark on exciting scientific explorations and experiments, fostering curiosity and critical thinking.
  • Social Studies: Through stories, discussions, and projects, students will learn about Alberta's history, geography, government, and communities, gaining a deeper understanding of their place in the world.
  • Arts and Physical Education: Creative expression and physical activity are integrated into the curriculum through art projects, music, drama, movement, and physical education classes, allowing students to explore their talents and develop healthy habits.


Effective communication between home and school is essential for your child's success. Our Grade 3 teachers are committed to keeping families informed and involved in their child's education. Your child's teacher will communicate with you about how they will share regular, class-specific updates with families.
