    Language Arts

    The Woodstown-Pilesgrove vision for language arts literacy instruction indicates the expectation that students will receive a balanced literacy approach and will value their       ability to use it in their everyday lives for pleasure, purpose, and enrichment.

    Instruction includes the following components:

    Writing

    Reading to Succeed - Small Group Instruction

    Math

    The third grade curriculum is designed to create an educational experience that results in children who are flexible mathematical thinkers, who see the connections between the mathematics they learn in school and the thinking they do in everyday life, and who enjoy mathematics.  This curriculum incorporates the best of traditional mathematics, while widening the horizons of students' mathematical thinking.  

    We are implementing the Common Core State Standards which can be found at the following link:
