Calvert Grade 3 – What’s in the Box

Cameron will be finishing second grade in three or four weeks. We had planned to get his third grade stuff in early March. We were absolutely thrilled when we found out Calvert was having a 30% off sale this month. Perfect timing. We ordered a few days earlier than we had planned and saved over $300!

The Calvert grade 3 boxes arrived yesterday. I am so excited for the new “year” (we’ll be moving right on after he finishes second). I just love all the stuff that Calvert provides. So nice and complete and such a great education.

The first two pictures are things not included as part of the third grade set. I order them separately.

Calvert Test Series for the core and math, printed answer keys for the core and math (you can get pdfs of the answer keys on-line, but I just prefer them pre-printed and bound for me)

And now for what’s in the Calvert 3 box. (Not pictured are the ATS tests which we don’t use since we don’t do the ATS and the paperwork and instructions that come with every grade.)

Lots of supplies! A pencil box, two tiny lightbulbs, a few things for science that I can’t identify, a balance, a spring scale, a hand lens, a composition book, a ruler, a pool of wire, connecting cubes, bar magnets, three thermometers, a pack of manila paper, and three pads of white paper.
