Third Grade

Welcome to 3rd Grade at Helotes Elementary! In third grade, we focus on educating the whole child. We believe that for our kids to reach their maximum potential, we can’t only focus on core subject areas. We want to create learning opportunities in the core subject areas that also allow students to communicate and collaborate, be critical thinkers, AND be creative! We do this by providing engaging hands-on experiences, incorporating technology, and differentiating instruction that allows for each student to grow and bloom as learners. We look forward to partnering with you throughout your child’s 3rd grade year.

Fifth Grade

In fifth grade, students are encouraged and expected to be more independent in their learning, and take more responsibility for organization and long-term planning.  They will practice more complex mathematical concepts such as decimals, fractions, algebraic concepts and more. Students will read and understand new vocabulary in science and social studies as well as significantly improve their grammar skills. Students will build on what they learned in 4th grade by analyzing material in deeper ways, and writing structured, clear, and detailed pieces about a variety of subjects. In science and social studies, they will expand their knowledge about the earth and space, historical events and important historical figures.  We look forward to growing your great fifth grader at Helotes Elementary!
