The focus of third grade is the motto, “I can do it myself.” Third grade is about trying to complete assignments and tasks independently. As readers for two full years, students are encouraged to find enjoyment from books. The third grade math year centers on a review of addition and subtraction and begins the journey through the multiplication tables. Third graders begin creative writing with details and descriptions becoming key in sentences and paragraphs.
