Brighter brain
Third-grade brains' myelin-coated "white matter" now usually exceeds their non-myelinated "grey matter." This means that their interconnecting brain has greatly strengthened the ability for high-level thinking, planning, problem solving, and information processing. You can help your child by guiding her towards "memory strategies" so your child can quickly file away the immense quantities of data that schooling requires. One great outcome of all this white matter development: Third graders can be significantly less forgetful than second graders.http://www.greatschools.org/parenting/behavior-discipline/slideshows/4451-brain-third-grade.gs?page=2#slide
