3rd grade is a year with a big jump when it comes to student expectations. Children are often seen as "big kids" around this time and with that comes increased responsibility, decision making and independence. You can help your child or students develop these skills through some great academic lessons and projects whether at home or in the classroom.
One of the big skills learned during 3rd grade is multiplication and division. Although students may have been introduced to the concepts in the past, during this year they should be able to fluently give answers to multiplication and division problems without picture prompts or help. Additionally, students transition from learning to read to using reading as a skill to help them learn. Focusing on reading strategies such as comprehension, text analysis, and inferencing will help students become better readers. Student writing should also be progressing in third grade. Students should be able to write a well-developed paragraph, complete with a main idea.
