We will be following our version of Memoria Press Grade 3 Classical Core Curriculum. We have chosen not to start Latin until 5th grade with First Form Latin. Also, we will complete one half of Greek myths this year and half in Grade 4. Christian Studies 1 will begin in Fourth Grade.
We also enjoyed many of the books from Ambleside Year 2.
Here I will list some topic specific resources that we have found helpful.
