    Third Grade Core Kit

    Core subjects are the "basic essentials" of education for a particular grade, such as reading, science, and religion. CHC's third grade homeschool curriculum kit includes lesson plans, answer keys, and all the core texts except math and literature books, which can be purchased more affordably from other sources (see Also Required for Third Grade below).

Three cheers for CHC!! My son just finished the 3rd grade curriculum, and he has already told me that he “only wants to take like one week off from school and then start 4th grade”!! During his annual reviews teachers are blown away by what he is doing and the type of projects that he has completed.
