Third grade is a transition grade. Students begin the lifelong process of reading to learn, as opposed to learning to read.
Mrs. MacNevin has a proven track record that states: “Learning can be fun in a structured and loving environment.” Subjects taught include: mathematics, language, spelling, Bible, American history and geography, health, science, reading, and cursive writing.
Special projects include: a Native American project, book reports, animal notebook, president report, holiday crafts, and a science poster.
In addition to the daily academics, third graders have three major field trips. Students have an opportunity for a hands-on experience in archaeology at Historic Spanish Point. Also, third graders attend the Venice Symphony children’s concert and a play.
VCS also provides classes in computer, art, music, Spanish, and physical education. Attendance at chapel once a week helps to round out the spiritual training offered at VCS.
