Grade 3

  • Reading

    Sunrise 2nd Edition

    Reading 300 continues our tradition with reader stories that not only inform and entertain, but also edify and inspire character. No time is wasted on fairy tales and fantasy. Our stories teach lessons in how to deal with life's problems with integrity and courage.

    LightUnit Study

    The LightUnit study consists of ten LightUnits. Students may do many exercises independently. The Teacher’s Guide contains answers, instructions for teaching new concepts, ideas for oral reading activities, and questions for discussion.

    The Teacher’s Guide provides answers to the LightUnits, ideas, useful appendices, and alternate LightUnit tests for students who need to redo a test.

    Worksheet Study

    The Worksheets study requires teacher involvement. Teachers must provide review and prepare students for tests. The worksheets are bound in two booklets, each containing 30 two-page lessons. Quizzes and tests are sold separately.

    A Teacher's Guide gives daily lesson notes with tips for introducing stories and discussing them with your class, and includes reproductions of student pages with answers filled in.

  • Bible

    Sunrise Edition

    Bible 300 introduces the student to the first four books of the New Testament. The first LightUnit is a story that acquaints students with Jewish culture and customs during the time of Christ. The remainder of the course is a study of the Gospels that will continue into fourth grade.

    Each lesson contains an interesting story from Jesus’ life and workbook activities. Each LightUnit has two quizzes and a test. By doing two or three lessons per week, this course will cover the entire school year.

    The Teacher’s Guide gives objectives and suggestions for teaching each lesson and provides alternate LightUnit tests for students who need to make up for a failing test score. Reproductions of all the LightUnit pages, quizzes, and tests are included with the answers filled in. Answer keys are optional if the Teacher's Guide is purchased.

  • Language Arts

    Sunrise 2nd Edition

    Language Arts 300 teaches grammar, spelling, and penmanship. Students identify nouns, verbs, adjectives, and sentence subject, and begin diagramming. Language mechanics taught include punctuation, capitalization, and subject-verb agreement. A creative writing lesson is in each Light-Unit. Students learn to use contents pages, indexes, dictionaries, and encyclopedias.

    The Reference Chart explains parts of speech, punctuation, and more.

    The Teacher’s Guide includes LightUnit pages with answers, review questions, teaching tips, alternate tests, scope and sequence, a glossary, and spelling words.

  • Math

    Sunrise Edition

    Math LightUnit 301 reviews concepts that should be adequately mastered in order to succeed in Math 300. It can be used as a diagnostic tool.

    The remaining LightUnits review previously taught concepts in Math 200 and introduce new skills and concepts in incremental, continuously reviewed steps. We teach the metric system simultaneously with the U.S. system of measurement. Students acquire a full understanding of both systems.

    Addition/subtraction flash cards and multiplication/division flash cards are required for this course. By the end of the course, students should have memorized the multiplication tables up to 10.

    Each LightUnit incorporates a theme into its daily story problems, adding a practical component to math. Themes in Math 300 include insects, cooking, the ocean, and a family vacation to Yellowstone National Park.

    The Teacher's Guide provides answers to the LightUnits, ideas, useful appendices, and alternate LightUnit tests. Answer keys are optional if the Teacher's Guide is purchased.

  • Science

    Science 300 explores various fundamentals of science. Each LightUnit can be completed in about three weeks and includes a self check for each section and a LightUnit test. The ten themes, one per LightUnit, are as follows:

    301 You Grow and Change
    302 Plants
    303 Animals: Growth and Change
    304 You Are What You Eat
    305 Properties of Matter
    306 Sounds and You
    307 Times and Seasons
    308 Rocks and Their Changes
    309 Heat Energy
    310 Physical Changes

    This course has 9 answer key books required for the course. The answer keys for 301-307 are duplicates of the student work with the answers filled in. The answer keys for 308-310 are in list format. 309 and 310 are bound in one book.

    No teacher’s guide is available; the reading level is simple enough for third graders to study on their own.

  • Social Studies

    Sunrise Edition

    This course uses the text Living Together on God’s Earth, a study of communities. The student first recognizes his community as one small part of the earth, then explores four communities of Bible times, one European community, one American community, and the old and new countries of Israel.

    You have two options for this course: use the LightUnits study guides, or follow the textbook exercises. Both options require the textbook.

    The LightUnits provide exercises, daily review, quizzes, and tests. LightUnit 306 is optional for those preferring a five-LightUnit course. Teacher materials include LightUnit answers, discussion/activity ideas, and reproducible maps. Answer keys are optional if the Teacher's Guide is purchased.

    For a textbook study, use the questions provided in the text. Teacher material for this method contains answers to these questions, discussion ideas, reproducible maps, and answers to the test questions. A separate test booklet contains all the tests needed for one student to complete this course. For map activities, purchase the student pack of outline maps or use the masters in the Teacher's Guide.
