Grade 3

In third grade, students continue to work on reading fluently with appropriate rate, expression, phrasing, and accuracy. They work on reading with purpose and understanding, increasing their stamina for reading independently. Students use their background knowledge and knowledge of literature and informational texts to make inferences about events and characters.

Students continue to learn how to create informational, opinion, and narrative writing through our Empowering Writers Program, which uses literature other published examples as a jumping off point for instruction. Children will see high quality writing and hear high quality stories to help them understand what their writing should look and sound like.

We continue to work with students to participate in collaborative conversations and demonstrate the standard English grammar in speaking and in writing.

Massachusetts has adopted the Common Core State Standards, which has designated specific skills in reading, writing, speaking and listening, and language at each grade level.
