Printable Third Grade Worksheets

1. Third Grade Math Worksheets

Our printable third grade worksheets for Math are an extra help with the basic Math facts like multiplication, division and fractions which simply need introduction and then plenty of practice.

Introduce the times tables and the concept of putting amounts together by sets to form products then the math symbols.

By second grade most students are familiar with the basic Math facts.

If not, reintroduce.

Many still benefit by using Addition Worksheets and Subtraction Worksheets for practice and review; yet by third grade most students are learning or are interested in or handy with the “easy addition” of multiplication.

2. Third Grade Reading

These are our favorite Reading resources that incorporate the use of Phonics.

They teach the basics of Phonics that you will see throughout our site:

3. Third Grade Spelling Worksheets

By the time that students are studying 3rd Grade Spelling words, they frequently have a grasp of the basics in Phonics. If not, be sure to visit our Phonics Worksheets page.

  • We have a complete year's worth of third grade spelling words worksheets that have room to practice the correct spelling of words three times each.
  • There is also a reference sheet to match this list of spelling words. 

Our list is from an old third grade reader so that this is a useful version to both faster and slower students.

Third Grade Spelling Words List

The six page reference list of spelling words is below for easy reference. I like to print this on card stock for my students so that it lasts through the year.

Spelling Third Grade Worksheets

The main download has 106 pages including the six page printable Spelling list for reference and the spelling practice worksheets.

Rather than wait till a higher grade to learn endings, these worksheets show many words with the different endings. 

This means that your students have an opportunity to see how the word meanings change with different suffixes and some prefixes.

It also shows some examples of different spelling rules. Explain them as you teach.

Third Grade Spelling And Vocabulary

Isolated practice spelling lists like our 3rd Grade Spelling words can also be lists of vocabulary words.

You will find that when your students can

  • spell and pronounce vocabulary words, 
  • write spelling words correctly from dictation,
  •  use them in sentences of their own,
  •  distinguish the prefixes and suffixes with their meanings, 
  • and have the habit of using the dictionary with new words 

reading comprehension will also improve.

Third Grade Vocabulary Lists

How can one comprehend words that have no meaning?

This is why studying vocabulary words is so important. Simply use the same words you're using for spelling class.

Any time that you recognize words that are from your students' spelling lists, be sure to explain them.

Pretty soon they will be looking them up in glossaries or dictionaries, so it's good to form the habit of learning which spelling to use by the meaning of the word.

Third Grade Reading And Spelling Activities

If you look through your student’s reading activities for important words to understand, you can then offer those words as spelling words and vocabulary words.

You can do this manually on our blank spelling worksheets choosing the line-ruling (large or small) on our printable writing paper and two or three columns.

Personal Spelling Notebooks

Also, encourage your student to keep his or her own notebook or binder of misspelled words for Spelling practice, Spelling rules, and definitions.

Even a brief synonym, symbol, or a picture can help students remember a word's spelling and definition.

In this way the same notebook can be used for many years. Just add to it each year.

Personal Spelling Lists In 3rd Grade

I find that isolated spelling lists are more useful when a personal list of difficult spelling words is also kept for practice.

This is an excellent short cut for smarter students who have no problem with a weekly list of spelling words.

If your children form the habit of keeping a list of their own misspelled words from

  • essay writing, 
  • practicing the correct spelling, 
  • and looking up the vocabulary words; 
  • he will learn "how to learn new words" in any science or study.

Use the extra spaces in our practice printable third grade worksheets for spelling to help your kids form this habit.

The worksheets can be printed out to fill a binder with divided sections. Keep these and any vocabulary papers in the 3rd grade spelling words section.

You can buy all our K-6 spelling worksheets and lists in one bundle with convenient files.

4. Third Grade Writing
