3rd Grade for Language Arts

Third Grade

Third grade students move from decoding words to learning more about what words mean. They learn longer and more difficult words that express abstract ideas. They also start thinking more about what they read. They identify and discuss main ideas, characters, plot, setting, and theme. They read a variety of grade-level-appropriate classic and contemporary literature and add biographies, historical fiction, science fiction, and mythology to what they have read in earlier grades. Third grade students get to know the kind of writing and organization used in textbooks. They read fluently, with expression and without stopping to figure out what each word means, at the target rate of 110-120 words correct per minute (wcpm). They not only write clear sentences but also clear paragraphs that demonstrate an awareness of audience and purpose. They also deliver brief oral presentations, tell stories, and perform plays.
