Book List for Individual Studies, Grade 3

Math

Science

Language Arts

Select Track A or Track B

Since students at this age still vary in reading and writing levels, Individual Studies, Grade 3, offers two tracks of reading and writing plans: A and B. Select the track that best fits your student and follow that track’s plans throughout the year.

Track A

For students who would benefit from more reading practice and who are ready to learn cursive.

 

Track B

For students who would benefit from more reading practice or guided reading instruction (add the teacher book lessons) and more practice in either printing or cursive.

[SCM]: Available from SCM.

Reading and Writing

Since students at this age still vary in reading and writing levels, Individual Studies, Grade 3, offers two tracks of reading and writing plans: A and B. Select the track that best fits your student and follow that track’s plans throughout the year.

Track A—For students who would benefit from more reading practice and who are ready to learn cursive. Track A plans use New Friends, More New Friends, and Print to Cursive Proverbs.

Track B—For students who would benefit from more reading practice or guided reading instruction (add the teacher book lessons) and more practice in either printing or cursive. Track B plans use Hymns in Prose for Children, Hymns in Prose Teacher Book (optional), and Hymns in Prose Copybook.

English

Students progress in spelling, capitalization, punctuation, and English usage guidelines through the literary passages presented in Spelling Wisdom, Book 1, and the guided discovery lessons in Using Language Well, Book 1. The first half of these books are covered this year, the rest in grade 4.

Science

Use any of our SCM living science courses—such as Outdoor Secrets with The Outdoor Secrets CompanionThe Pond and Stream Companion, or Learning about Birds with Thornton Burgess—and feel free to combine your children in grades 1–6. These plans will remind you when to do the next science lesson and keep you moving at an enjoyable pace, with some catch-up days included. Journaling a Year in Nature is recommended for nature study.

Math

Lessons include reminders to work on your choice of math curriculum. We recommend The Charlotte Mason Elementary Arithmetic Series, Book 3.
