3rd Grade

Deepening Your Child’s Understanding Across Subject Areas

3rd grader explores interactive lessons

Meteorologist. Map-maker. Storyteller. Citizen. Calvert’s accredited 3rd Grade homeschool curriculum invites your child to “live the lessons” while exploring the world through Science, Social Studies, English Language Arts, and Math.

With Calvert’s detailed Lesson Manuals as your guide, you will help your child:

  • Explore the elements of narrative through the fables, folktales, and myths of diverse cultures.
  • Understand how geography informs how we live by studying different regions and cultures of the U.S.
  • Study our three branches of government and the meaning of citizenship
  • Apply basic economic concepts in engaging projects.
  • Develop logical reasoning and engineering design skills while investigating the principles of force and motion and the life cycles of plants.

For students who struggle with reading, we also offer our specialized Verticy ELA course.

Continuing to build math skills learned in 2nd Grade, your child will work with fractions, two-step word problems, multiplication, and shapes.

Designed to help parents meet common state homeschooling requirements, each year-long course consists of 18-25 lessons and 160-180 days of instruction.

I was very anxious about homeschooling my child for the first time. After I called and spoke with a Calvert Education Counselor, I felt SO much better! The counselors have given me a lot of advice and support over the years and I’m very grateful for their help.
