Chalk Talk: Benchmarks of the Third Grade
The third grade marks a developmental period when curriculum becomes more expansive and challenging. The third grade is also a time when state mandated assessments become quite important and students’ learning reaches a new level of accountability. It is also a time when their social studies curriculum becomes more central to their lives. Before this period, social studies mostly consisted of small doses of geography, citizenship, and history. Upon entering the third grade, social studies instruction consists of more thematic lessons and concepts that place students in a world of economics, geography, and government. Main objectives of the third grade include identifying U.S. presidents (not all) and what role the president serves, knowing which city and state they live in and locate it on a map, recognizing the seven continents, and locating major tools on maps (keys, compass rose, cardinal directions, etc.). Because their world is expanding, and their roles within it, it is important for parents to provide instructional support at home through practice and discussion.
