Third Grade Goals and Targets

In third grade, students listen, read, speak, write, spell, use language, and enjoy literature in many genres following the Common Core Curriculum Standards.

We use the  Pearson enVision MATH Common Core program and other resources to implement the Common Core Curriculum Standards. Our students explore, conjecture, reason mathematically, apply a wide repertoire of methods to solve problems, and communicate mathematical ideas clearly and effectively.

Our science units are simple machines, matter, water and weather/climate, and the solar system. In social studies, students learn about U.S. regions, continents, map skills, and current events.

Proper keyboarding, basic word processing, and research projects are also third grade activities. In addition to technology skills, the children work on cursive penmanship.
