Grade Three Lightning Lit Preview
This is the third year of our elementary program, and again, you will read more great children‘s
books with your child, discuss them together, and use them as a springboard for grammar and composition.
Each week, your child will read a portion of a chapter book (with the occasional week of poetry using the
same book that was used in second grade); answer a variety of questions about it; learn something new
about grammar, punctuation, and/or literature; complete a few workbook pages; write a short composition.
(The program allows for read–aloud and dictation for any children who aren’t reading and/or writing yet.)
There are other activities as well, and extra challenge projects if you wish to go further.

We will start sending out lessons in September. We may not always meet each month‘s deadline, but we will
do our best.
Thank you for those who have been with us from the beginning of Grade 1; with Grade 2 we more than doubled
our participating field testers, and welcome to those of you who are joining us this year with Grade 3!
