Third Grade Curriculum

Third Grade Homeschool Curriculum

Cultivating a Love of Literature

3 preview copyCalvert's Third Grade Homeschool Curriculum features Smiling Hill Farm, a classic but rare children’s book that is reprinted exclusively for Calvert. This is the first piece of literature your child will read on his or her own. It is supplemented by story anthologies.

Composition classes help your child further develop organizational writing. Your child will also use an effective workbook and online lessons to reinforce spelling skills.

Expanding on New Concepts

Third Grade students also begin to learn about ancient mythology and art history, two subjects that prepare students for greater literature appreciation.

Calvert is now offering two choices for Math: Our classic Calvert Math will include strategies and algorithms to add and subtract whole numbers with regrouping. In Math in Focus, students multiply three-digit numbers by a single digit.

Calvert’s technology program features spreadsheet graphing and presentation software. In Science, students study life cycles and force and motion. In Social Studies, students learn about how communities form and work together.

Reviews of Calvert's Third Grade Curriculum

This is the first year that we are using Calvert but my daughter loves the subjects she is learning. She loves learning about Mythology and is enjoying working at her own pace. She also loves the programs on the computer and learning her keyboarding skills. I love what she is learning and the challenge that it is giving to her. The lesson manuals make it easy for me to teach her because all of the material is broken down for me. Calvert was the best choice for us.

As a Calvert family since the early 1990's, we've used every grade and most of the Enrichments Calvert offers. Third grade is my personal favorite. Reading by now is more for information/pleasure than the actual work of decoding. Famous Americans is short, to the point, and a great jumping off spot to explore American History. My current sixth grader still keeps Greek Mythology on her shelf, it's still her favorite subject after three years! Science has always been a weak point in our home-school, but now that Calvert is including the grade level science kits, lab anxiety should be easy to overcome. Including hands on activities makes Science more interesting, easier to understand, and improves retention. We also enjoyed the Computer Skills and Applications that ties computer skills in with many different subjects. Third grade is awesome!
