Third Grade Social Development

3 of 8

They don’t like being absent from school.

This is one thing about third graders’ social lives that their teachers can appreciate. Kids this age anticipate seeing friends and entering their lives away from home. They don’t want to miss something that might happen that their friends will be talking about.

What you should do: Enjoy a deep sigh of relief, especially if your child wasn’t the most agreeable about getting ready for school each morning in the past.
