Third Grade Math

While multiplication is explored as a concept in first and second grade, the “times tables” take center stage in third grade. Third graders are expected to learn their multiplication facts to up to 12 times 12, as well as be able to multiply a double digit by a single digit. Fractions, place value, and measurement are also key third grade math concepts. By the end of the year, your child should be able to:
  • Use place value to read, write, and describe the value of whole numbers through 999,999
  • Determine the value of a collection of coins and bills
  • Use fractions with denominators of 12 or less to describe parts of whole objects or sets of objects
  • Construct concrete models of fractions
  • Model addition and subtraction using pictures, words, and numbers
  • Use operation to solve problems involving whole numbers through 999
  • Learn and apply multiplication facts through 12 by 12 using concrete models and objects
  • Solve multiplication problems up to two digits times one digit
  • Round whole numbers to the nearest ten or hundred
  • Recognize congruence and symmetry
  • Identify congruent two-dimensional figures
  • Identify and create two-dimensional figures with lines of symmetry using concrete models and technology
  • Identify, classify, and compare two-dimensional figures, three-dimensional figures, or both
  • Compare objects by attributes like length, area, weight/mass, and capacity
  • Use standard units to find the perimeter of a shape
  • Read and write time
  • Measure temperatures in degrees Fahrenheit

Third Grade Reading

Now that the basics of reading have been acquired, your child will expand his or her vocabulary using skills like determining meaning from context. Third graders play with language in new ways, exploring concepts like antonyms, synonyms, homophones, idioms, and figurative language. By the end of the year, your child should be able to:
  • Understand how to change the spelling of a word to accommodate word endings--for example, dropping the final e when adding endings such as –ing, -ed, -able; doubling final consonants when adding endings (stop to stopping); or changing y to i when pluralizing certain words
  • Identify meaning of common prefixes (in-, dis-) and suffixes (-full, -less), and know how they change the meaning of root words
  • Use context to determine the meaning of unfamiliar words
  • Identify and use antonyms, synonyms, homographs, and homophones.
  • Retell the themes and supporting details of fables, legends, myths, or stories
  • Compare and contrast the setting in myths and traditional folktales
  • Explore and describe different forms of drama and poetry
  • Identify the characteristics of various forms of poetry
  • Explain the elements of plot and characters as presented in a play
  • Distinguish his or her own point of view from that of a narrator
  • Understand the use of persuasive language and how an author uses it to is influence a reader
  • Follow and explain a set of written multi-step directions
  • Locate and use specific information in graphic features of text
  • Know vocabulary about literature, including words such as stanza
  • Differentiate literal from non-literal language
  • Compare the most important points and key details in two texts on the same topic
  • Recount stories
  • Determine the central message, lesson, or moral of a reading and explain how it is conveyed through details

Third Grade Activities

Here are some simple activities to try with your third grader:
  • Play an easy game with synonyms. Choose a word. Take turns thinking of synonyms for the word. Keep the game going as long as you can. The first person to run out of synonyms loses. The winner thinks of a new word.
  • Help your child learn how to take meaning from context. One good way to do this is to read newspaper or magazine articles about current events. Often, these texts will feature words that are unfamiliar to your child. Help your child use clues from the rest of the story to guess at the word’s meaning. Flash Skills Reading Comprehension also offers practice is using context clues.
  • Explaining a set of multi-step directions is challenging! Have your child write directions for a simple activity, such as making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Then, together, follow the directions word-for-word. See if your child missed any steps.
  • Have your child think of something he or she would like, such as a new pet, a trip to the zoo, or a later bedtime. Have your child write a persuasive essay on the topic. (But remember to point out beforehand that, no matter how persuasive the essay might be, there’s no guarantee of a new puppy!)
  • Most of us remember that learning the times tables requires a great deal of repetition. Try simple timed practice with Flash Kids Multiplication Flashcards, or make a game out of it using Flash Kids Multiplication War Flashcards. Start slowly, practicing the ones and twos, and move on to new numbers each time your child has mastered one set of facts. Be sure to use lots of praise and encouragement!
  • This is a good age to start offering allowance for simple household chores. Have your child keep a ledger of the amount he or she earns and spends each week. Not only will this offer practice in counting bills and coins, it’s a great way to learn to budget money!
  • Cooking with your child is an excellent way to practice fractions. Have your child measure out the ingredients for a recipe. Look at the various measuring cups and ask questions such as, “Which is more: 2/3 cup or ½ cup?”
  • Remember that practice makes perfect. Encourage your child to review basic math facts using Flash Skills Math Drills, Flash Skills Multiplication, and Flash Skills Division.
