PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Weekly Interactive Lesson Plan Template Aligned to the Third Grade Common Core Standards!

NOW INCLUDES TEMPLATES IN A PDF FORMAT FOR MAC USERS!
PLEASE SEE THE NOTES AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS DESCRIPTION BEFORE PURCHASING
Third Grade Teachers:

Are you required to align your lesson plans with the Third Grade Common Core Standards?
Do you want a lesson plan template that will save you time in planning your lessons?

If you answered “yes” to the above questions, then these lesson plan templates ARE FOR YOU!

This set of General Education Third Grade lesson plan templates are unique in that they are: (1) aligned with the Common Core State Standards in the areas of English Language Arts – Reading, Writing, Speaking & Listening, Language- and Mathematics; and (2) fully interactive with drop down menus, and plain text content control typing fields for easily selecting/inserting relevant information related to planning lessons for your Third Grade students. These lesson plan templates were designed to SAVE YOU TIME in preparing weekly lesson plans!

This product contains a total of 12 templates. Each subject area template contains the following sections: Identifying Information, Common Core Standards Focus, Learning Targets/I Can Statements, Essential Questions, Materials/Instructional Resources, Integration of Technology, Scaffolding Extensions - IEP/504 Accommodations/Modifications/Supplemental Aides and Services (both General and subject specific) Procedures, Evaluation, and Notes/Reflections. Each section is explained more fully below.

1. Identifying Information – with plain text content control typing fields for inserting the teacher’s name, the unit/theme being studied, and the dates the lesson will be implemented;

2. Common Core State Standards – with drop down menus for selecting the standards focus for the lesson with a section for each domain in each subject area (see note at bottom);

3. A section for Learning Targets/I Can Statements, Essential Questions, and Materials/Instructional Resources with plain text content control typing fields;

4. A section for Integration of Technology with drop down menu for selecting the specific strategy for integrating technology into the lesson;

5. A section for Scaffolding Extensions - General and Subject Specific Accommodations/Modifications/Supplemental Aides and Services – with drop down menus for selecting up to three general and three subject-specific accommodations, modifications, and supplemental aides and services to document that you are implementing differentiation strategies and addressing the needs of your special needs learners;

6. A Procedures section with space to include explicit instructional strategies for five days (Explanation/Modeling – I Do It; Guided Practice - We Do It; Independent Practice – You Do It and a Closure section – all with plain text content control typing fields) - set also includes a set of templates with generic instructional format for those who may not utilize the Explicit Instructional format;

7. An Evaluation section with space to specify the Formative Assessments you will use for each of the five days. The specific formative assessment to be used can be selected from a drop down menu – just click on the selected assessment and it is inserted into the document! The Evaluation section also contains space for you to select from a drop down menu the Summative Assessment you will use as well as an optional Scoring Rubric section for you to type in the criteria for four levels of performance; and

8. A Notes/Reflections section with a plain text content control field for quickly inserting important reminders before the lesson and/or reflections regarding the outcome of the lesson or notes for follow-up after the lesson has been conducted.

This lesson plan set contains templates for Third Grade, two each in Word document format for the subject areas of English Language Arts- Reading, English Language Arts – Writing, Speaking & Listening, and Language, and Mathematics (both explicit and generic procedures formats) and two of each of these documents in PDF format (both explicit and generic formats). The Word Documents are fully editable.

This is THE LESSON PLAN TEMPLATE for Third Grade Teachers! These lesson plan templates contain everything you need to complete thorough lesson plans, aligned to the common core and using research-based instructional and assessment strategies.


*PLEASE NOTE: The Word document templates were created using Microsoft Word 2010. The interactive features in the Word documents are only accessible on a PC computer with Microsoft Word 2007 or later installed. The interactive features in the Word document will not work on a PC computer with Windows 2003 version or earlier nor on a Mac. However, the interactive features in the PDF documents are accessible on a Mac. You will need the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader installed (You can download free of charge on the Adobe website) to access the PDF documents.

**PLEASE NOTE: There is a character limitation in the drop down menus on both the Word and PDF documents. For the Word documents, no more than 256 characters can be entered into the drop down list and displayed or printed in the document. Therefore, for those standards containing more than 256 characters, the majority of the standard will be displayed, but all characters beyond the 256 limit in the drop down menu will be cut off when inserted into the document. For the PDF document, the drop down menus will only allow one line of print. I have used an 8 or 9 point font in most of the drop down menus in the PDF documents to allow for more of the standard or item to be displayed and entered into the document when selected from the dropdown menu. Therefore, while most of the standard or item will be displayed in the document, some of the more lengthy standards and items will be cut off once the one-line limit is reached (particularly those with lengthy examples included in the standard).

If you have any questions regarding these Third Grade CCSS Aligned Lesson Plan Templates, feel free to contact me and...HAPPY (SPEEDY) PLANNING!

This template was extremely easy to use and totally customizable. So far no problems with the character limits. Really saves a TON of time when doing lesson planning, and it looks very professional! I could save these plans on a flash drive to have at school for a sub. Thanks very much!

Great idea! I love the selection in the drop down menus. It is hard to read unless enlarged, but that is understandable. I haven't tried to print it and am thinking I will keep it digital. Thank you!
On  January 5, 2014Time-Saving Teaching Solutions answered:
Thank you for purchasing these lesson plan templates. Since there is a character limitation in the drop down menus, I had to reduce the font in order to fit more of the standard in the drop down list. As stated in the description, "I have used an 8 or 9 point font in most of the drop down menus in the PDF documents to allow for more of the standard or item to be displayed and entered into the document when selected from the dropdown menu. " I can customize this template for you and increase the font in the drop down lists, if you want. Just email me at lwill77@hotmail.com and I will be glad to do this for you. Thanks, again, for purchasing!

Too much for me.. but it's a great resource.
On  November 3, 2013Time-Saving Teaching Solutions answered:
Thank you, Carlee, for purchasing my 3rd grade lesson plan templates. I designed the templates based on the components most school districts are requiring as part of lesson planning. However, the templates are fully editable. If there are components that you do not need or that do not fit your particular teaching situation, you can delete those. If you want, I can customize these for you to better suit your particular situation/needs. My email is lwill77@hotmail.com. Just send me an email indicating which components you do not need and I will be glad to modify the templates for you. I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks, again, for purchasing and providing feedback.

Are you only having difficulty with the math template? Can you access all the drop down menus on the reading and other language arts templates? If you want, I can email the math documents to you directly. Just email me at lwill77@hotmail.com and I will reply with the math templates. Again, thanks for purchasing this product.

I am unsure as to how to access the dropdown options in this document.
On  July 29, 2013Time-Saving Teaching Solutions answered:
Hello, Beth,
Thank you for purchasing my 3rd grade common core aligned lesson plan templates! The drop down menus should be fairly easy to access: First, when you download the file to your desktop, you will need to extract all files from the zipfile into a regular folder. Once this is done, click on the unzipped folder and you should see 3 things - two folders - one for the explicit format templates and one for the generic format templates, and a pdf document entitled, "List of Formative Assessment and Descriptions". Click on the folder containing the format you want to use (explicit or generic). You should then see 3 documents: a template for reading, one for writing, speaking & listening and language, and one for math. Click on the subject area template you want to use. When you do this, you will see a yellow button at the top of the document, "Enable Editing". Click on this button. When you do, the yellow bar/button should disappear and you should be able to edit the document. To access the drop down menu, click on "Choose a standard" or "Choose an item". When you do, you should see a small blue box to the right with a small black arrow. Click on the arrow and you should then see a list of items from which to choose. Click on the item you wish to select and it should then be inserted into your document. I am assuming you are working on a PC and not a Mac: as stated in the description of this product, the interactive features will not work on a Mac. If you try these steps and you still can't access the drop down menus, email me at lwill77@hotmail.com and I will send the files to you directly. Thanks, again, for purchasing!

I recently purchased your third grade interactive Lesson plan template. My question is that I must submit my lesson plans on a program called CIITS for the state of Kentucky. I submit to my principal who in turn submits to our board of education and from there the lesson plans may be made public. Will this violate your copy right?

Hello fellow Kentuckian!
Thank you for purchasing my 3rd grade interactive lesson plan templates. In a case such as this, if the lesson plans are to be made public, you should first save them as a PDF document and then submit them to your principal. In the PDF format, the interactive features are not functional and the form cannot be edited, but it will contain your completed plans as you edited them in the original Word document. If you are not sure how to save the competed plans as a PDF document, please contact me at
lwill77@hotmail.com and I will provide instructions on how to do this. Again, thanks for purchasing these lesson plan templates!

Hello, Beth,
Thank you for purchasing my 3rd grade common core aligned lesson plan templates! The drop down menus should be fairly easy to access: First, when you download the file to your desktop, you will need to extract all files from the zipfile into a regular folder. Once this is done, click on the unzipped folder and you should see 3 things - two folders - one for the explicit format templates and one for the generic format templates, and a pdf document entitled, "List of Formative Assessment and Descriptions". Click on the folder containing the format you want to use (explicit or generic). You should then see 3 documents: a template for reading, one for writing, speaking & listening and language, and one for math. Click on the subject area template you want to use. When you do this, you will see a yellow button at the top of the document, "Enable Editing". Click on this button. When you do, the yellow bar/button should disappear and you should be able to edit the document. To access the drop down menu, click on "Choose a standard" or "Choose an item". When you do, you should see a small blue box to the right with a small black arrow. Click on the arrow and you should then see a list of items from which to choose. Click on the item you wish to select and it should then be inserted into your document. I am assuming you are working on a PC and not a Mac: as stated in the description of this product, the interactive features will not work on a Mac. If you try these steps and you still can't access the drop down menus, email me at lwill77@hotmail.com and I will send the files to you directly. Thanks, again, for purchasing!

Hello,
I recently purchased this item and love it! However, I teach gifted/blended students.
I would like to adjust the accommodations area to include a drop down choice for a list that I use to differentiate for my gifted students. How do I change the list in the drop down boxes?
Thanks!

Hello!
Thank you for purchasing the 3rd Grade Lesson Plan Templates! I am so glad you like them. The forms are fully editable...here's how you change the accommodations section to add entries which are applicable to your gifted students:
1. Open the document and click on the "Choose an item" to get it highlighted as if you were going to choose one of the accommodations.
2. At the top of the window there is a bunch of tabs, find "Developer" and click on it. You should then see a series of things you can do under this tab.
3. Find "Properties" and click on it. Another small window should pop up.
4. Go down until you see the Drop Down List Properties section.
Under this section you should see the heading "Display Name" and under that will be the first entry "Choose an Item". You will need to keep this "Choose an Item" entry intact and make sure it is highlighted when you finish what you want to do.
5. Under "Choose an Item", you will see the list of entries in the drop down menu. Highlight each one you want to delete and click the "Remove" tab on the right.
6. When you have deleted all those you do not want, click on the "Add" tab on the right. You will see another smaller window, "Add Choice" pop up. Your cursor should be in the "Display Name" line.
7. Type in the accommodation you want to add and click "OK". The new accommodation entry should appear under "Choose an Item" in the list.
8. Repeat steps 6 and 7 until you have all your gifted accommodations entered.
9. When you are finished entering all your accommodations, click on the "OK" button at the bottom of the small window. This will take you out of this window and back to the main window in the document. All your newly entered accommodations should be listed in the drop down menu when you click on the small black arrow on the right side.

Hope this helps! If you have any difficulty, don't hesitate to contact me again. Thanks, again for purchasing!

When we purchase something like this can we save to a flashdrive or does it have to go to our computers? Our school will be replacing our computers and we want to be sure if we purchase this we won't lose it. If it was on a flashdrive I can lesson plan at home and school.
Thank you,

Hello, Theresa!
Thank you for your interest in the 3rd Grade Interactive Lesson Plan Templates. To answer your question, when you purchase a license for a product, you may use the product on your home computer, school computer, laptop, etc. You most definitely can save it to a flashdrive to go between computers. The copyright on the product just means that you, the purchaser, are the only one with permission to use the product. So, you can have it on as many devices as you need! Also, when you purchase a product, the product goes into your "My Purchases" section on the TpT website and you can download it whenever you need to. So, if you have it on your school computer and it is deleted or you lose it because you get a new computer, you can always come back to your "My Purchases" page of the site and download it again. Hope this answers your question! Thanks, again for your interest in this product!
