  • In the third grade, your child will work on skills such as (but not limited to) the following:





    -area and perimeter

    -mass and capacity

    -adding and subtracting with regrouping

    -telling time and elapsed time



    -comprehension of text using the text provided

    Third grade is a big year for independence. Parents can focus on guiding their child to become more responsible with their daily tasks, bringing things to and from school, and helping to build their self confidence. Parents are encouraged to keep in close contact with their child’s teacher and support their child both in and out of the classroom to ensure a successful school year!

    Reading outside of school provides the additional support and encouragement that allows students to create a deep passion for reading, to deepen their comprehension skills, and to build a broad vocabulary knowledge. Reading strategies can be developed and used before, during, and after reading takes place. These strategies reinforce what your student is learning in third grade.

    • Help your child organize his/her thoughts by planning what he/she wants to write. Using sticky notes or a graphic organizer will provide a visual way to accomplish this. 
    • Discuss family stories and history. Encourage your child to ask questions. Work together with your child to create a book, magazine, poem, short story, newspaper article, pamphlet, or other written narrative of your family’s history.
    • Encourage (and help) your child to write a letter, birthday card, get well card, thinking of you card, or thank you note to family members or friends.
