Grade 3

This is also another page under construction. I’m working on this one, too. But here’s a quick list of what we used:

Bible and Character

We used Apologia’s “Who Is God?” in 2014-2015 for our Bible studies and Achieve True Success for our Character studies.

Social Studies

Mystery of History Volume II for History (and a little Geography).

Araling Panlipunan is our current textbook for studying Philippine culture. We tried Kayamanan but it didn’t work out. The Filipino language used was at native-speaker level which we found difficult to digest. Also, there was such a variety of activities embedded in each lesson we got confused. What I found useful is that the book refers you to the Knowledge Channel which helped my auditory learner with his Philippine social studies. I would count the website as a supplemental learning resource for this subject.


We use Singapore Math (Standards Edition). I like that there’s a Home Instructor’s Guide with the answers to all the exercises, handy templates at the back. You need to buy this separately. I have found over the past few years that Singapore Math is easy to teach for me and is effective with teaching my kids their basic math. All of them do well with their Math components in the OLSAT and other assessment tests.
