Third Grade Curriculum Overview
Helping our students look at the world through God's eyes is our highest priority. Whether we are using the core curriculum or expressing our individuality through our other subject matter, we look for ways to help students see life the way God sees it.
Student studies include the following seven elements:
Saxon Math curriculum concepts covered in the third grade include Graphs, Roman Numerals, Multiplication Algorithm, Long Division, Geometry, Fractions, Measurement, Probability, Rounding, Estimating, Averaging, Money, Time, Temperature, Checkbook Balance, Positive and Negative Numbers and Square Roots.
Spelling at the third grade level begins with the Writing Road to Reading phonics program. Supplementing their spelling studies, students are taught cursive handwriting and dictionary skills.
The Grammar/Writing program for third grade includes instruction in the parts of speech and developing writing skills. This program is supplemented by writing essays, personal journaling, and creative story writing.
Students study a variety of literature styles, some famous authors, and novels. They practice to increase their reading speed and comprehension skills. Students learn library skills, and participate in drama presentations.
Geography elements include world map and USA map studies. Biographies of famous Americans are introduced as well as a timeline of exploration and settlement of USA along with holidays and cultures.
Genesis 1 and 2 are the basis for Science instruction at Emmaus. From the Creation account we find 10 basic Science categories. During their third grade year, students will be presented with detailed units on Astronomy, Zoology (habitats, invertebrates), Anatomy and Physiology, Plants and Weather.
Students will develop an appreciation of styles while completing a study of composers. Reading music and learning different hymns and their histories become part of everyday worship time. Students participate in a variety of classroom and school wide programs during the year.
Seven elements of art appreciation are developed through the study of a variety of artists and experience with their styles and mediums.
Sportsmanship, games (things to get our hearts thumping) and coordination are all part of the PE Skills program for third grade.
Third grade students enjoy a variety of field trips during the year planned to enhance our curriculum goals.
ACSI Student Activities:
Emmaus Christian School participates in some of the ACSI student activities offered throughout the year such as speech meet, spelling bee, art festival and math Olympics.
Everything that we learn in third grade is presented with a God-centered worldview, looking for ways to expose God's relevance to and interest in our daily lives.
