Grade 3

An artist's illustration of a teacher instructing a student in front of a chalkboard with several arithmetic problems.

Students meet the Galindos in Unit 1—a circus family of tumblers and acrobats. Billy Galindo learns a new tumbling trick and, in the process, learns about the importance of family support for developing his positive self-image. Jennifer Williams learns that a circus is like a family giving support and that her own family is the “greatest show on earth.” A clapper board visual aid is used to recognize positive actions when in the open ("action") position and is closed to "cut" when negative actions are done.

In Unit 2, Dr. Staywell teaches Teresa to take good care of her body. When she follows her advice, she looks and feels much better. A “Light Bulb” poster reminds third graders to use their intellectual abilities. In Unit 3, students learn they must be responsible for their own actions and use their “gifts” like time, energy, possessions, and feelings wisely. They meet Randy, a little “cowboy” who does not take good care of someone's horse, only to learn that the horse is now his. In Unit 4, they meet some children in stories who learn about friendship. Mike, a boy reluctant to travel with his parents to Europe due to a lack of friends there, learns that he can meet new friends anywhere he goes while learning the positive actions that lead to good feelings about people everywhere.

In Unit 5, the children hear a story about Betsy Bug, who makes excuses and has not learned to be honest with herself. They analyze themselves, honestly measuring their strengths and learning to admit their mistakes. In Unit 6, the Dragon poster reminds the children of the story of Princess Paula, who believed in herself, and Harrald, the dragon, who needed a lot of work to become the sort of dragon who could take pride in himself. They use their newfound confidence to think ahead and set goals for further improvement. Harrald becomes a much better dragon with some risk-taking, goal-setting, and hard work.
