Grade 3 is serious business at B.D. Somani. Keeping concept-based inquiry at the heart of our approach, Grade 3 is all about introducing students to topics and issues within a flexible structure that they will adapt to as they go forward. We focus on making their learning, thinking, and progress visible to them, using discussion protocols and reflection strategies after the introduction of every new concept or topic. In this way, children learn to approach new information in a systemic and open-ended way that aids their learning and generates questions and possibilities for further exploration.
We also place great emphasis on peer-to-peer exchange of ideas and make sure to document the learning process meticulously. We also make sure to have an informed approach to our teaching. For example, student responses and feedback help us shape our teaching strategies that in turn lead to more effective learning within the classroom.
