Brief Overview of 3rd Grade Subject Areas
  In third grade, we use the
McGraw-Hill Reading
and Math  series. 
Language Arts/Spelling
   The McGraw-Hill Reading
Program incorporates listening,
speaking, reading, writing,
grammar, phonics and spelling
skills into each unit of study. 
Math
    The math curriculum will
focus on the addition and
subtraction of 3-4 digit numbers,
place value, counting money,
geometry, fractions, probability,
measurement, multiplication
and division. Special emphasis
will be placed on problem
solving. A mastery of
multiplication facts from
0-12 is expected, by the end
of third grade.
Social Studies
     The third grade program
focuses on the study of world
communities. The students will
expand their concept of
community by discovering
how geography history,
natural resources and
economics have shaped the
communities of our world today.
