Hello! My name is
Caitlin Keough. This is currently my 7th year teaching. I teach third grade here at Saint Bridget School. Prior to working at Saint Bridget School I taught a variety of grade levels including 5th/6th and 4th grades. I love teaching at a Catholic School, and my favorite subject to teach is faith. I also teach math, science, reading, and language arts.
I love teaching, but I also love learning. I am currently working on my master’s degree in curriculum instruction. It is wonderful to be able to learn new ideas and strategies to benefit students.
Third grade is a wonderful and busy year! We take part in many projects throughout the year ranging from subjects like reading, math, social studies, and science. We have completed a mystery book report, a Christmas book report, and a Christmas Around the World research project. Most recently students have started our third-grade science fair project. They are also creating a multiplication game to share with their peers to help learn their multiplication facts. There are so many wonderful things happening!
In reading, we are learning different reading comprehension skills such as sequence, comparing and contrasting, author’s purpose, generalizations, drawing conclusions, and more. In math, students have been learning place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will also be learning time, money, geometry, and more.
Students in third grade are also preparing to receive their First Reconciliation in February and their First Holy Communion in May. Students learn all about these sacraments and the meaning of each in order to develop a deeper understanding of them.
Third grade is a wonderful year full of memorable and fun learning opportunities!
