3rd Grade

We start each day reciting the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag, singing a song, and having family prayer. Afterwards, we start “school” with math as I find my kids do better with it first thing in the morning. In the younger grades, we study science and history on alternating days. At this age, school work REALLY starts to increase. After lunch, our third graders continue with school work until finished.

These are books and products we have used in our home at this age.
