Third grade is smack in the middle of their first real school experience. The students are now reading chapter books (hopefully) and writing short stories and essays on their own.  Third grade students are really among my favorite of all the ages of students.

Building vocabulary is so important and of course, the backbone is living in a vocabulary rich environment where a lot is said and there’s plenty of interesting conversation.  Words lists and word games can be a great way to move forward. Examples of what you can see and do are  3rd grade spelling and vocabulary words lists on VSC.

Anybody want help learning how to study in  fourth grade?

Because vocabulary learning is so vital in   third grade writing standards, it is important for parents to encourage third grade vocabulary activities at home.

Third grade is a year of highly visible progress in reading, writing and language arts. By the end of third grade language arts, students should:
