Grade-Level Content Standards

Third Grade

Think back to where your child started as a Kindergarten student and be prepared to be amazed at how far your child has come in just a few years. During the third grade year, students combine all of their given talents and learned skills to demonstrate learning.

Ways to Support your Third Grade Student

  • Be sure that your child is reading daily. It is still very appropriate to read to your child. Consider choosing a classic chapter book and read a chapter or two every night.
  • Check homework daily.
  • Ask child about upcoming projects that may require additional support from you.
