Welcome to Third Grade

  • Third grade team

    Third grade is an important year in your child’s academic growth. It is a time for learning responsibility, independence, and academic perseverance.

    This year we will be using myView Literacy Florida as our Language Arts curriculum. We will give reading and spelling tests each week. With this curriculum students will have 5 days of instruction and one day of assessment. Students will use the Lexia Reading computer program for daily practice of literacy skills, and we will use the STAR Reading assessment to monitor reading proficiency throughout the year.

    We use the Go Math Florida curriculum for mathematics. Tests and quizzes will be given at mid-chapter and at the end of the units. Students will practice math skills using the i-Ready computer program, which includes a diagnostic assessment that monitors math proficiency throughout the year.

    Students will complete the Florida Assessment of Student Thinking (F.A.S.T.) three times this year as part of the Florida Department of Education's system of progress monitoring.

    Our Social Studies instruction includes the study of economics, regions and cultures in the U.S. and North America, government, and map skills. Science instruction is inquiry-based and focuses on application of concepts.

    Third grade is a wonderful time. Right in the middle of elementary school, third graders possess a unique mix of both ability and wonder. We look forward to having a terrific year.
