Educating Our Parents: Understanding the St. Helens District Curriculum
Students begin to learn about the elements in literature from a young age. In elementary school students work on finding literary elements while working on their fluency and comprehension. They also read traditional stories and make predictions, comparisons and contrasts between several stories. These students are encouraged to select their own books to read when they enter middle school.
The students at St. Helens Schools learn to look around them for examples of science. They can look at the life cycle of water or of rocks, they can watch how a plant grows from a seed or they can see what systems are needed for a living thing to live. As they enter high school they will be able to look at wetlands and understand how this area is filled with science. The same for forests, they look at them and then develop a forest travel project for the area. Before graduating, some students may take a biology class that encourages them to face a current issue like the debate around genetically manufactured seeds.

Chalk Talk: Intellectual Development in Third-Graders
Third grade students have quite a bit of curiosity. It is not enough to tell them facts at this age, they also want to know why and how. If they ask a question that the answer is not at hand, look it up together. This shows the child that curiosity is not just for children. By this age, they have developed their own opinions and they may not match up with the parents. This is all right. Show the child that there are different ways to approach many things. Along with these changes, the third grade child wants more challenging activities. When presented a puzzle, most of them are able to find a way to complete it. Parents need to encourage their children in their activities. Make sure they know how proud you are of them by showing relatives what they have accomplished and make sure they have what they need to complete their projects.
