3-206 | Teacher: Mr. Joseph Curro | jcurro@sfaacademy.org

In 3rd grade, students transition from the primary to intermediate grades. The work becomes more challenging as the students learn to take more responsibility for their work, their words, and their actions. I teach using a variety of strategies in order to reach each individual student. Students learn best when they are active participants in their education so I develop lesson plans in all subject areas that encourage students to ask questions, search for answers, and persevere through problem solving. Lessons are enhanced through daily use of our SMART Board and the incorporation of videos, songs, on-line academic programs, and interactive activities. Read More About the 3rd Grade Curriculum
