****Please understand that the first weeks of school will be some typical beginning of the year activities, such as getting to know you, classroom culture, friendship, technology procedures, zoom rules, etc. We will try to stick as close to the live/work times as we can.


3rd Grade Curriculum

Social Studies – Our social studies program publisher is TCI. The Social Studies Alive!  Our Community and Beyond social studies program addresses the Common Core standards for social studies. Some topics we study are: communities in the United States, civic ideals and practices, government, continuity and change, and global connections.

Science -  We are addressing the NGSS (New Generation Science Standards).  We will learn about the following topics:  life cycles, fossils, variance of traits, climate and weather, biomes of the world, and forces of motion.

Handwriting – In the classroom we will practice the letters, analyze strokes, and practice alignment. By the end of the second trimester, the students will be writing in cursive.

Language Arts/Reading – Your student will be assigned a reading level. We will be reading from our district reading series, short stories, and chapter books. Your child will be learning and reinforcing phonics skills, decoding, vocabulary, language, comprehension, referencing, and study skills. Spelling tests will be given on Fridays.

Math – Our math program is Everyday Math 4. PLEASE review addition and subtraction facts.  These facts need to be automatic.

Writing – Our writing is embedded in the ReadyGen reading program. Most of the writing will be developed in steps.
