Third Grade Resources Focus

Guess who has a third grader? Yes, I do. Actually, I have some children. They are people first.  But they have certain attributes such as what grade level they are working at. Mine are working at the third grade level. Of course, I'm writing facetiously here but the People First movement is actually something I leaned about from Kelly S when I one day spoke or wrote without paying attention and put myself in a category of people that categorizes people unsympathetically. Since then, I can't even say "I have a third grader" without my inner voice coming after me.

Betthatasitmay, in third grade:

Collection of Third Grade Spelling Word Lists and Vocabulary Lessons

From there, you can find and I quote:
Third grade vocabulary lists are also available on VocabularySpellingCity. Vocabulary lists include antonyms and synonyms; homophones and homonyms (multiple meaning words); and third grade content specific lists. Content area vocabulary covers concepts, such as third grade science vocabulary words (matter, motion, and scientific inquiry) and third grade math vocabulary (fractions, base ten, and weight/volume).

Lookign elsewhere, there's Time4Learning's third grade homeschool program and Time4Writing's Third grade writing program for homeschoolers.

And again, I quote from T4W this time:

What is 3rd Grade Writing?
In third grade, writing becomes a key component of school curriculum. Third grade students write more independently than in any previous grade and spend significant blocks of time engaged in writing on their own, as well as in assigned projects. Students hone their paragraph writing skills and write multi-paragraph compositions. As specified in third grade writing standards, students learn to organize their work using a beginning, middle, and end, focusing on sequence of events. Students are also taught to use descriptive detail and literary devices, such as dialogue, point of view, and figurative language (metaphors and similes). Third-graders continue to expand their knowledge of grammar, spelling, and mechanics, as well as how to evaluate writing and conduct research.
