Our third grade curriculum is very rewarding, comprehensive and challenging. We will provide students with positive learning experiences while encouraging each individual to reach the fullest potential as an independent learner. The curriculum is comprised of the Cambridge Public Schools Curriculum Frameworks, along with the Frameworks from the Massachusetts Department of Education. The Reading and Writing Program based on the Literacy Collaborative model. The following is a brief outline of what you can expect your child to be studying this year.

Writing/reading journals will be used as an ongoing assessment, Weekly word study, Cambridge Public School periodic assessments in reading and math, weekly math facts test, and the MCAS testing in both reading and math in the spring.
Third grade has three grading categories using G-good, S-satisfactory and I-improvement needed.
