An In-depth Exposure to Social Studies and Literature
In Calvert’s 3rd Grade curriculum, your child will explore literature and develop skills for organizational writing, all while delving into new concepts such as mythology and art history. Calvert’s 3rd Grade curriculum also features Smiling Hill Farm, a classic but rare children’s book that is reprinted exclusively for Calvert as your child’s first piece of literature to read on his or her own.
Two different math options are available with our 3rd Grade curriculum: 1) Calvert Math, a traditional math program where students are introduced to multiplication and division up to 9s, read and write numbers with place values through the 100,000s, delve deeper into fractions, tackle word problems, discover pictographs and bar graphs, and are introduced to statistics, probability, and graphing measurement or 2) Math in Focus, a new, modernized math approach where students compare and order numbers up to 10,000, use number bonds to add and subtract up to three-digit numbers, add and subtract dollars and cents, and identify parallel and perpendicular lines and right angles.
Students in the 3rd Grade will also start to broaden their exposure to technology, learning how to manipulate data and create useful tables in spreadsheet graphing and presentation software. In the 3rd Grade sciences, students will study life cycles along with force and motion. Finally, the students’ social studies will center around how communities form and work together.
