Third Grade Worksheets Give Kids an Academic BoostThe move to third grade can be intimidating for youngsters, as concepts in all subjects become more complicated and they’re asked to learn more independently than in the past. A good way to ease the transition and ensure your child remains on the right academic path is to print out our third grade worksheets. Not only will you find dozens of activities for every subject and skill level, but many of those activities feature amusing illustrations and cool games, making study and practice time a lot more tolerable. Because there is so much variety in these worksheets, it might be best to start by identifying the subjects in which your child is most deficient and have her target those areas first. If you start to sense frustration, though, shift gears and give her a confidence boost by having her complete worksheets in subjects where she’s most proficient. Along the way, be your kid’s biggest cheerleader. Congratulate her when she successfully finishes a difficult exercise, and encourage her to keep plugging away if she hits a speed bump. After all, when it comes to learning at a young age, a little positive reinforcement goes a long way.
