To write a heading for a third-grade homework assignment, write the student's name and the date in the top left corner, the subject and teacher name in the top right corner and the assignment title in the middle of the top line. Heading instructions vary based on the teacher.
Homework in the third-grade is typically assigned to get the student used to completing schoolwork every night. While homework can often be completed by the student, the assistance of a parent helps the student learn more effectively.
Common third-grade homework assignments focus on subjects including reading, spelling and math.
Examples of spelling assignments are three times each, sentences and pyramid spelling. Three times each is spelling out a word three times, while sounding out each letter during spelling. The sentences assignment involves writing a certain number of sentences, with one word that is used in every sentence. Pyramid spelling involves writing a word's first letter on one line, its first two letters on the line below that and continuing this pattern until the word is complete.
Reading homework examples including reading logs and comprehension questions. A reading log is a record for parents to sign, indicating that their child has read for the required amount of time. Comprehension questions are questions about what the child is reading.
Math homework examples include computation and word problems. Computation problems focus on math formulas, such as addition and subtraction. Word problems are written in sentence format, often with multiple steps.
