3rd Grade Curriculum Choices

I am getting all geared up for the new school year. Last year I didn’t share our curriculum plan because I waited until we had started school and at that point life was too busy! This year I am getting a jump start on the planning and sharing!!

Bible: Cat and Dog Theology and Positive Action Growing with God
Math: Saxon Math 3 Intermediate, Life of Fred Cats and Dogs, for speed of facts
Science: Nancy Larson Science 2 and Snap Circuit project or two each week
Reading: All About Reading Level 4, several assigned chapter books (I will share this later), tons of read aloud, and audiobooks.
Spelling: Spelling You See Level B and then C when we finish up B

The Story of the World Volume 2, we will be using the activity book and the tests this year. We will be doing lots of hands on activities and projects.
