Homeschool Third Grade

"Once you learn to read, you will be forever free." ~~ Frederick Douglass

School Plans/Reviews that include third grade: 2015-16

Religion

  • Faith and Life 3 along with paper activity book.
  • Increase personal prayer.
  • Once a month Confession.
  • CCD

Math

  • Horizons 3 (I started this for the first time with my second son in this grade. I wish I had used it sooner! He loves math. Horizons Math is a spiral format, and it has a colorful workbook, both of which work well for most of my children.)

  • Supplement: Building Real Life Math Skills.

Reading

  • For Comprehension: Reading for Comprehension B (can also count toward social studies and science).
