3rd Grade Review All Math Standards Assessment for Common Core Test Prep

HI! Interested in the product listed above, just curious if there are any open ended questions?

Thanks!

HI! Interested in the product listed above, just curious if there are any open ended questions?

Thanks!

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

No, there are no open ended questions in that particular product. I wanted to mimic our end of grade test as close as possible and since our test is only multiple choice, that is the format I chose to do. I did present each standard in a variety of ways though to also mimic our test.

I do have products that are more open ended in nature. I have been working on task cards for each math standard where almost all of them are not multiple choice. I also have some math games that are more open ended.

If you really want an open-ended math product though, I would try my non-routine problems. I have a set for older students and a set for younger students. They will truly get your students thinking mathematically, but they are not focused on the individual standards-more math reasoning in general.

Let me know if you have any other questions about any of my products!

Wanda M. re: 5th Grade Daily Math Morning Work Whole Year Practice All Common Core

How do you keep the fast kids from working ahead each day? Have you ever had that problem?

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

I do have some kids that work ahead, but I don't tell them they can't. As long as they have time to also work on the challenge problem during the week (really work on it), I am fine if they are ahead. I still only go over one day at a time though. For my students that do work ahead, a lot of them will work on the challenge problem the rest of the week since they are usually pretty hard for most of the students. Some students though (ones who have already solved the challenge problem or have worked hard on it but are clueless) read from a book of their choice while other students are still working.

If you don't want students to work ahead, just tell them they have to work on the challenge problem for the remainder of time that day. If they solve it early in the week, then they can read for the remainder of the time that day.

Math is Fun (TpT Seller) re: 5th Grade Daily Math Morning Work Whole Year Practice All Common Core

Again, I love your product and use it every morning with my 5th graders. I think we found 2 errors. I have some very smart students that keep me thinking all the time!!!

Week 23, Thursday, problem 1

The answer given assumes you would find the volume of the figures in feet , and then convert them to yards. I don’t think that is correct. I think the conversion to yards must be done first. Making the answer 238 1/3. If you think of a cubic foot 1 x 1 x 1, its volume would be 1 ft cubed. if you convert that to inches, after you find volume, you would think it’s volume would be 12 in cubed. When in fact, it should be 12 x 12 x12 or 1,728 in cubed.

Week 24, Challenge Problem

In your explanation, you start with 585 and state that the next palindrome is 606, but the next should be 595. I think that would give you an answer of 14.2857143.

Thanks so much!

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

Thank you so much for taking the time to give me specific errors! I don't know what I was thinking on the first one, but you are absolutely right. For the challenge problem, I changed the original palindrome of the problem so that the calculation would still be the same. I feel if I didn't still make it 30 mph, it may have been too difficult. Therefore the original palindrome is 595 and the time difference is 22 minutes.

Thanks so much again for taking the time to be specific in what was wrong- I greatly appreciate it, and I am glad you have some smart students to keep you and myself on our toes!!

I really want to try out your free week of morning work with my fourth graders. No matter what I do, however, I cannot get it into a printable size. Do you have any ideas?--Thanks, Cliff

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

It may differ depending on what type of computer, programs, or settings that your computer has, but I will tell you what I do. If I just print it without changing anything, it still prints, but it makes the border (white space around everything) slightly bigger; therefore, I adjust my printer setting to "scale to fit paper". It is still one slide per page, but it makes the border smaller so that it gives a little more room for the actual problems.

I hope that helps you. I have the 2010 version of Power Point. I am not a technology guru though, so I don't know what else it could be? Oh, also make sure your Acrobat Adobe is up to date; I know that sometimes can create technology issues as far as downloading correctly.

Sarah Roach (TpT Seller) re: 3rd Grade Daily Math Morning Work Whole Year Practice All Common Core

Hi there!

This looks amazing! I'm wondering (as a Canadian teacher) how much of this is specific to imperial measurements. I notice there are meters in the preview, is it like that throughout, or more in inches / feet / gallons?

This looks amazing! I'm wondering (as a Canadian teacher) how much of this is specific to imperial measurements. I notice there are meters in the preview, is it like that throughout, or more in inches / feet / gallons?

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

For the 3rd grade pack, specific measurement questions will only focus on fractions of an inch.

There are a lot of the other metric (imperial) and customary measurements, but the students do not have to actually do anything with them. For example, an area problem may use yards for the unit, so the answer will also be in yards, but the students do not have to actually know anything about yards to solve the problem (they just have to understand area).

Another example would be a word problem. Here is one that comes in the pack: "Ava has 4 bags of trail mix that each contains 6 grams. She wants to give all of it to her three friends in equal amounts. How many grams will they each get?" Again, students do not need to understand grams to solve this problem; they just have to include grams in their answer.

I hope this makes sense! Please let me know if you would like a little more clarification!

I am a parent who has downloaded your book common core daily math for 3rd graders. I would like you to explain how on week 18 how the answer is 18 posts. I have posted this question on facebook and 63 responses and not one got 18 as a answer. My poll takers include a nuclear engineer, lawyers, multiple teachers, doctors, nurses, and so on. The question reads: One toy fence is 12 inches long and 8 inches wide. If htere is a post every 2 inches, how many posts are there? Thank you in advance.

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

Thank you for bringing this to my attention! I have fixed and uploaded the new version to show the correct answer of 20.

Buyer

I just purchased the math morning work file. I am excited to use it, but would like to put each day on a PPT slide. Is that anything you would be able to help with? Thanks so much, Beth Ginther

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

This product should come up as a PDF, but I used PPT to create it, so you should easily be able to display each page as a slide through a projector (once you have the product pulled up through your computer). You won't be able to edit it or use it as an interactive smartboard, but you should be able to display it. I have actually done that in my class before.

Any areas which involve measurement and money do not suit the Australian curriculum.

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

Is there anything you would want to see that is important to the Australian curriculum if I had the time to do it?

Buyer

I am a teacher from Australia and I just love your Morning Math Work for 2nd grade. I would like to purchase all of the packages however, there are some elements which do not suit the Australian curriculum and syllabus requirements. Do you sell these resources in an editable format so that I am able to edit the specific areas in order to suit Australian students?

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

I am so sorry; unfortunately I do not offer these in an editable format. Which parts do not align? If it is minimal, I would consider altering it for you.

Celeste Burgos (TpT Seller)

Your work is absolutely wonderful! I will be purchasing the whole year 4th grade daily math work. I am curious... how do you make these worksheets? What program do you use and how do you actually create the sheets for assessments and the daily work? I love your things but I have some ideas of my own but I have no idea where to start. I really like the way you do your work and I would love to know how you got started. Would you share your expertise? Thank you!

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

First, I would absolutely recommend becoming a seller on TpT to share your own excellent materials. There is a lot to learn at first, but then you start getting the hang of things. The best place to learn and ask your questions is through the sellers' forum (you will have access once you sign up as a seller). This is where I learned pretty much everything I know including what program to use. I create most of my products through Power Point (I was using Word, but once I started using Power Point, I realized how much easier it is). Once I am done with a product, I save it as a PDF so that it doesn't get skewed once other people open it (especially if they have a different year or something). You will also want to look into cover pages, copyright, clip art, creating thumbnails, creating previews, and more. You can this through the forums. The most importance advice I have is to just create quality products and have a lot of patience since it takes time to get your stuff out there! Good luck on your new venture!

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

I use the Words Their Way elementary assessment for my third graders. There is a primary assessment and an older assessment if the elementary one is not just right. I do the primary one with my EC students who really struggle, and I do the higher one with my students who get most of the words on the elementary assessment correct. If they are using the primary assessment or do poorly on the elementary assessment, they are usually in group one (I even have a couple of kids this year who only get 6 of the words on the group one list). If they do the higher assessment or do very well on the elementary assessment, they are in group 3. All of the other kids are placed into group 2.

2 Brainy Apples (TpT Seller)

You are welcome! There is are a couple of sites that some of us routinely check to see if our items are on there. So far only freebies of mine are on there. I was sad with my freebies being offered, so I can only imagine how it feels when a paid item is on there. I just search Google using my product names to see what pops up. I also have Google alert set to 2 Brainy Apples, and it does a good job of alerting me, but this one wasn't sent so I am not sure why. wwwpbworks.com and www.bookezzz.org seem to be host sites that allow document uploading. It is certainly frustrating that now we have to police the web to make sure our items aren't being shared. If I run across anything of yours in the future, I will be sure to let you know :) And congrats on the new baby! Isn't motherhood amazing??????

Do you have language arts morning work, like the math work that has monday through friday?

Buyer

Love your Grade 3 Morning Math. We just started using it yesterday! It's INCREDIBLE! You did an amazing job and we appreciate all your hard work. Thank you.

2 questions:

1) The Student tracking grid days do not match up to the questions. E.g. Monday has 6 questions but the Weekly student tracking sheet only shows 5 columns. Tuesday shows only 3 columns but there are 4 questions. Wednesday shows 6 columns, but there are 7 questions, etc.

2) What do Tuesdays' entries mean: "Add the following conceptually and using the standard algorithm"? Does "conceptually" mean record the "estimate"? Is there a reason none of the Tuesdays show actual answers on the answer sheet? That would be helpful.

Thanks!

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

I am so glad you like the resource I made. The reason the student tracking grids are always a problem off is because I do not include the word problems in the tracking sheet. The word problems are always varied skills and levels, so there isn't much to track. All of the other problems are skill based and repeat each week so that students can truly see the progress they are making throughout the pack (although the skills progress, they remain consistent in each quarter). Therefore, even students who really struggle with math will see progress and improvement as the pack goes- which is awesome to see because they are very proud of themselves!

For the first problem on Tuesday, I want students to use the standard algorithm and some sort of conceptual approach. Because there are many, many ways to add or subtract something conceptually, I don't specify one given way students should do it. The Common Core is more focused on a conceptual approach too, so I felt it was important to include it. A conceptual approach is basically any way to solve a problem that is not the standard algorithm. For addition, this could include adding by place value, adding using the number line (starting with one number and adding on the other number in pieces), adding more and then taking some back away (ex. 45 + 99 could be thought of as 45 +100 - 1), etc. For subtraction, this could include counting on, using a number line to take off one number, etc. Although I don't show the actual procedures, you can easily find the correct answer in the fact family portion of the answer key right below that first question.

I hope this all makes sense to you. Let me know if you have further questions or if I need to clarify something more.

I want to say I enjoy using your 3rd grade morning math, however their are multiple mistakes. I am just on week 11.

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

Thank you! I have found them myself and have updated it. You should be able to redownload them and print just those weeks again. If you find one that I did not find, please let me know so I can fix it. I guess being that this was the last one I made this past summer (after 4th and 5th), I just started missing some of the errors even after multiple attempts to check it thoroughly! Thanks again for the heads up, and please let me know if I have not fixed the ones you have found once you redownload it.

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

I have considered it, but for the amount of time it takes, it is unlikely I will make one. If I do tackle that project, it wouldn't be until next summer. Thank you for your interest though. The 5th grade 4th quarter (and maybe 3rd quarter) version would be a perfect review for the beginning of 6th grade though. I hope that helps!

Yes, that is not a problem since I see that you have purchased both products. I just need your email address so that I can send them to you. Have you tried updating the adobe? I think it is free, but I am not sure-that may save you time in the future. If you send me your email in the next hour, I can get both products to you tonight.

I just got your next message and deleted it for you so that your email address wouldn't stay on here! I just emailed you the two products, so I hope that helps!

I love your product and we use it everyday! It provides a great review/preview for my math students. I think that we found an error. Week 9, Friday, problem 6, should be, his calculator says 202 instead of 102 since the rule is double, plus 2. Also , on week 9, challenge the product of the digits would be 0, according to the solution you gave, rather than 15, since there is a 0. Lastly, on the answer key for week 3, Tuesday, the correct answer is 4,128 rather than 4,120.

Thank you!!!

Thank you!!!

Buyer re: 4th Grade Daily Math Morning Work Whole Year Practice All Common Core

Do you have or are you planning on creating this for extended grades? (6-8th grade?) This would be so beneficial to use in the upper grades as well! I am currently using this 4th grade version as review for my ELL and remedial students. I do have some 6th graders who could benefit from on grade level math warm ups. If you have these or plan to make these, PLEASE let me know!!!! Thanks!!

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

I do not currently have plans to make these for 6-8th. I could see making one for 6th way down the road, but I can't promise I will. It seems the higher the grade, the more time it takes to make it and right now I am more limited on time. The 5th grade one, for example, took me about 170 hours to complete. My sister just moved to 6th grade though too, so I have definitely thought about it (maybe a project for next summer).

The 5th grade fourth quarter pack would be a great review for average 6th graders at the beginning of the year before you have really delved in deep into the 6th grade curriculum.

Buyer re: 3rd Grade Daily Math Morning Work 4th Quarter Practice ALL Common Core

I bought this during the sale and am excited to begin using it on Monday. In the download you mention that you sometimes have the kids fold the paper in half and paste half of the page into a math notebook so that it can be showed to parents during conferences. I like that idea, but I did not get how it would work. Can you re-explain that part? I am very excited to start this work and I know it will benefit my students. Thank-you!

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

I just started this again last week; I am glad you are excited to start it too!! What I do is have the students glue in the student tracking sheet (1st semester) by folding it in half and gluing down half so that it is on the front, inside cover. I use composition notebooks; if you don't you could put the student tracking sheet on the first page instead (if your front cover isn't supportive enough). The reason I put this in the front is so that students can easily access it at the end of each day to keep track of what problems they got correct and which problems they got wrong.

The week 2 page also gets folded in half and glued onto the 2nd page (back side of the first page) of the notebook. They fold it so that the paper unfolds outward- leaving the right side free for work space while the paper is unfolded. Week 3 would go on page 4 (back of page 3) for the same reason and so on. However, it isn't super important which way the paper unfolds; as long as students have the morning work on one side and room for work on the other side.

Later (2nd semester), the weekly pages will continue in the same way, but I will have students glue the new, student tracking sheet (for the 2nd semester) on the inside cover of the back of the notebook. Again, students will be able to easily flip to it each day after I go over the morning work to mark which problems they got correct.

This is just how I do it; there are many ways it could be organized. The sheets could also be placed into a three-ring binder with a piece of paper (if students need extra work space) behind it. Any way you decide to organize will be fine; I do love that I will be able to take one notebook and show parents how their child is doing with the skills of third grade. The student tracking sheet will be especially good for this!

Please let me know if you need further clarification. It seems easy to me until I start to try and explain it! I hope what I just said makes sense! :)

Thanks,

Rachel (Teacher Addict)

The week 2 page also gets folded in half and glued onto the 2nd page (back side of the first page) of the notebook. They fold it so that the paper unfolds outward- leaving the right side free for work space while the paper is unfolded. Week 3 would go on page 4 (back of page 3) for the same reason and so on. However, it isn't super important which way the paper unfolds; as long as students have the morning work on one side and room for work on the other side.

Later (2nd semester), the weekly pages will continue in the same way, but I will have students glue the new, student tracking sheet (for the 2nd semester) on the inside cover of the back of the notebook. Again, students will be able to easily flip to it each day after I go over the morning work to mark which problems they got correct.

This is just how I do it; there are many ways it could be organized. The sheets could also be placed into a three-ring binder with a piece of paper (if students need extra work space) behind it. Any way you decide to organize will be fine; I do love that I will be able to take one notebook and show parents how their child is doing with the skills of third grade. The student tracking sheet will be especially good for this!

Please let me know if you need further clarification. It seems easy to me until I start to try and explain it! I hope what I just said makes sense! :)

Buyer re: 4th Grade Daily Math Morning Work 4th Quarter Practice ALL Common Core

Hi,

Last year I purchased your third and fourth quarter morning math work for fourth grade. Can you send me a sample of one week from quarter one. I am trying to get my team on board with purchasing the entire year. They tried out another one,but I'm not crazy about it. Thanks.

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

Sure. I actually have a trial week (week 4) just so people can try one from the first half of the year. I will put the link below, but if for some reason it does not work, just go to my store, click on "4th grade daily math morning work" on the left under "Custom Categories" and it will pull up towards the bottom of the page. The other freebie (from week 27) is also there.

Also, if you want to show them all of the skills and types of word problems that are addressed within the pack, you could print off those two pages from the preview.

Buyer re: 5th Grade Daily Math Morning Work Whole Year Practice All Common Core

I am new to TpT and this would be my first download. Is the document editable once I download it? While it looks like a great product, I'd like to make some small changes to make it more usable in my classroom. Please let me know. Thanks.

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

I am so glad you asked before purchasing it! Thank you for that. It is not an editable product. Just so you know, if you ever see the format as a PDF, it is not editable. For copyright purposes, most sellers upload their products as PDFs, so it is good to check beforehand.

I do have a week that is free for the first semester and a week that is free for the second semester if you still want to try it and see how it works the way it is.

Teaching With Purpose (TpT Seller) re: 5th Grade Daily Math Morning Work one week freebie (week 11)

Are you making one for 6th grade too?

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

If I decided to make one for 6th, it wouldn't be for a while. However, the 4th quarter of the 5th grade version would serve as a great review for the beginning of 6th grade. If you get the other 5th grade freebie (week 19), you will get a better sense of what the 3rd and 4th quarters offer skill wise. By the 4th quarter though, most of the skills have progressed to be more difficult than week 19.

Buyer re: 2nd Grade Daily Math Morning Work 2nd Quarter Practice Common Core

Is this available for 1st grade?

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

No it is not. I probably won't create one for first just because I thought the template was not as suitable to 1st graders as it was to 2nd through 5th graders. I felt like 1st graders might need more guidance, bigger space to write answers, etc. However, I have only taught 5th and 3rd, so let me know if you feel this would work for 1st graders - it is something I would consider if enough people were interested in it which so far you are the only one to inquire about it (I had a lot of inquiries when I only had a 3rd grade version for a 2nd, 4th, and 5th grade version).

Thanks for your interest!

Meryl Jefferson (TpT Seller)

Thank you. I will look into it. Our state is in a transition year, so although we are teaching CCSS, we are still taking the FCAT (NGSSS). So confusing...

Meryl Jefferson (TpT Seller) re: 4th Grade Daily Math Morning Work one week freebie (week 4)

Do you have the same product available as a Powerpoint or Promethean slides?

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

No, sorry! Although this is a PDF, it was originally created in Power Point, so you could still easily project a slide up for the whole class to see it at once if that is what you are needing it for.

Kayne T.

Does it make a difference if I purchase your 5th Grade Daily Math Morning Work for the Whole Year or purchase the 1/2 Quarters and the 3/4 Quarters separately? It looks like a wonderful tool to use with my students - it's very thorough! I wish you had it for Language Arts.

Thanks,

Thanks,

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

It would only be a difference of a $1. The whole year pack is normally $23.00 whereas the two separate quarters would be $24.00. However, if you purchase this today, with the Back-to-School sale, you will get 28% off!!

Wendy K. re: 3rd Grade Daily Math Morning Work 3rd and 4th quarter practice All Common Core

Looking forward to your complete fourth grade packet!

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

I am not sure if you mean you are looking forward to using it or are looking forward to me having it ready. If it is the latter, you are in luck because I do have a complete 4th grade pack! :) I hope you will find it as useful as everyone else who has purchased it so far!!

Buyer re: 5th Grade Daily Math Morning Work Whole Year Practice All Common Core

I am a teacher on a really tight budget. Could you workout a deal on the price for the whole year of morning work?

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

Unfortunately, I can't work out a private deal. However, TpT usually does some sort of back-to-school sale in August or September (I am not sure because I haven't been involved with one yet). I am assuming they will do this again this year, but they don't let the sellers know about it until a couple of days beforehand, so I really don't know yet. They always offer a percentage off though if they have it. Sellers also have the option to offer some off, so I would be on the lookout for that some time soon hopefully!

Mr Educator - A Social Studies Professional (TpT Seller)

I just noticed that you love to hike in Western North Carolina. I assume you are from there as well - I used to teach in Catawba County! What a small world!

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

Yep! My husband and I go hiking in Pisgah and Dupont the most, but we go other places as well! Did you hike a lot when you were here?

Buyer re: 3rd Grade Daily Math Morning Work Whole Year Practice All Common Core

Do you have the Common Core Standards listed for each question?

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

If you look at the preview, you will see how I set up the questions/standards. There are certain standards covered each day, so you will see exactly what standards are covered on every single Monday along with all of the other days. Then, for each word problem (one a day), I list what is being covered with that particular problem. I didn't list the specific standards because some of the standards are more vague. For example, if a problem requires students to add three numbers, I will put that as opposed to the standard that would encompass that specific skill.

Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions!

Julie M. re: spelling words and letters for the whole year for 3 differentiated groups

Just wondering what initial spelling quiz you use to determine which group they are in?

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

I use the Words Their Way assessments. I start with the elementary version (since I am third). If I have some students do very well on it, then I may also give them words from the next test up (can't remember the name of it). There is also a primary test version for younger students. These tests give me a very good idea of where each child is (ability wise) and what patterns they do/ do not understand. Hope that helps! Let me know if you have any other questions; I have spent a long time trying to perfect a spelling system!

Tiffany P. re: Non-routine Math Problem Solving- Critical Thinking and Math Reasoning

Do you have any plans to make non routine math problems task cards for the lower grade levels? I only see them for the upper grades. Thank you also for the whole year in the morning math work. I love them!

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

You know, now that I have made a 2nd grade version and a 3rd grade 1st and 2nd quarter version, I could probably compile a lot of those and add others, but you would have a lot of them (34) since there is one on each week of the math you just bought. Also, a lot of those aren't really non-routine problems- they just seem that way since the students are so much younger. Older students would be able to solve a lot of them fairly quickly and in a true non-routine problem even an adult may have to think about how to go about solving it.

Thanks for the idea though! At some point (maybe even this summer) I may put together a compilation of these younger ones; although, I may not call it non-routine problems.

Kathryn J. re: 4th Grade Daily Math Morning Work Whole Year Practice All Common Core

Hello! Could you please tell me the size of each individual square/day? I was wanting to print these on shipping labels to put in a composition book so that I have a running record. Thank you!

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

That is a great idea! I print these out using the scale-to-fit option on the printer because it sets the borders closer to the edge of the paper. Using this version, I measured 3 3/8" wide or 8.5 cm. The height was a hair past 3 3/4" tall or 9.6 cm.

Then I printed it out using the normal setting (where the borders are further set in making each square a little smaller). Using this way, I measured the width as 3 1/8" wide or 8 cm and the height as 3 9/16" wide or 9 cm.

There may be a way to slightly fluctuate how big it prints through the printer settings, but I am not sure how to do that or if it is possible. I hope this helped you!!

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

I won't be able to personally let you know; however, I have no plans of reducing the price. The set includes 33 weeks at $23 which is about 70 cents a week. This pack also took me around 150 hours to make. I have actually thought about going up a little in price, but if I did, it wouldn't be for at least a couple of months.

I do think it is a good deal-just think only having to print one page for each student per week and having that built-in differentiation piece for your advanced math students-something to keep them busy since they will likely finish each day much quicker than the other students.

Thanks for your interest though! Also, you can get a better deal if you want to wait until the next TpT site sale. I have no indication as to when it will be yet (they usually only give us a few days notice), but I would imagine they will have one at some point in August or September.

Tiffany P. re: 2nd Grade Daily Math Morning Work 3rd and 4th quarter practice All Common Core

I love your new 2nd grade daily math work. I am looking for weeks 1-19. Are those posted or am I overlooking something?

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

I am glad you love them! I literally just posted them tonight. I started with the 3rd and 4th quarters because that is the product that will truly practice ALL 2nd grade math objectives routinely and I had thoroughly studied the 2nd grade standards first. I have now also studied the 1st grade standards and have mapped out a plan for a 1st/2nd quarter version. This version will also practice 2nd grade standards along with some 1st grade standards that foster a deeper understanding of the 2nd grade objectives.

I plan on starting the actual product tomorrow. It usually takes me at least a week (if I work full time), so hopefully about a week from now, it will be complete. It will definitely be done by the end of July! You can follow me if you want to be notified of when I upload that one and the whole year bundle (for a dollar cheaper).

I think I did leave a place that said I also had a 1st and 2nd quarter, so I apologize for that. I know in a couple of other places I put by the end of July 2013, so hopefully not too many other people are confused! Thank you for asking this question. Hopefully this will clear it up for other potential customers as well!

Buyer re: 3rd Grade Daily Math Morning Work Whole Year Practice All Common Core

This looks great! Are you making any for Language Arts?

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

I honestly feel so much more comfortable with spiraling math to cover all of the Common Core than language arts (this upcoming year I am even teaching the math for our team). However, I can't say I would never do it; I would just need to do a lot of planning first, so even if I did, it would probably be way down the road! Thanks for your interest though!

Mrs A Wilson (TpT Seller) re: 5th Grade Daily Math Morning Work 1st and 2nd quarter

How long do you give students each day to work on the problems?

Teacher Addict (TpT Seller)

Hi! I actually answered a similar question not too long ago, and here is what I said:

I actually haven't personally used this pack yet because I just made it and I now teach third grade (just had a lot of requests for a 4th and 5th grade version). However, I used to teach all of our school's 5th grade math, so I feel comfortable making an estimate on how long most days will take. I would estimate an average of 10 minutes. Although, I think you would have many students do it quicker than that. The good thing is that the skills are the same each week (they vary somewhat, but they are the same skills). This means if some of the students struggle at first, they will begin to get it and become much quicker. The word problems differ each week though. You could allow time for everyone to finish, but honestly if some students aren't finishing the first few weeks, I wouldn't worry too much as long as they are paying attention when you are going over it. They will get better and faster as they continue to practice the same skills week to week.

I have seriously contemplated it, but I don't think I would even have time to do a year pack. Just the half of year ones take at least 60 hours! I am still considering it though. I guess you could follow me just in case I decide to. I wish it could just happen without me having to actually make it because I would love to have one for 2nd and 6th grade too!! :)

They will get better and faster as they continue to practice the same skills week to week.

The first and second quarters are different than the 3rd and 4th quarter packs. They reflect a lot of what upcoming fourth graders should have already been exposed to, so they should be able to jump right into these sheets without much of a problem. The third and fourth quarters get a little harder because they really practice all of the fifth grade math objectives. Therefore, some of the skills you may be previewing still, but they will have been exposed to and practiced all of your objectives for about half of the year before taking any of the crucial tests.

As far as grading, I will tell you what I did with my third grade class this past year (second half which is when I started making these). For the first several weeks, I didn't take any kind of grade on it except to occasionally check to make sure students were checking and correcting any mistakes they had made in pen. I did not take them each week, but the students did not know when I was going to collect them, so they had to make sure they were always following along with me to correct things-for most of them this was an easy grade (that was not worth much). Once I felt the students had enough practice (even the ones who struggle some) I began collecting it occasionally to take a grade on it. I did not do this each week due to time, but you certainly could. How you calculate it could depend. You could count the skills problems a little more since they get to practice those each week and the word problem a little less since they are always different. Also, sometimes, I felt a problem was a little on the challenging side, so I either wouldn't count it or I would only count it as half. For a completely different way though, you could just keep track of how each student does each week just on the skills problems (I provide a sheet for you to do this and for the students to do this) to see how they progress if you are not desperate for a grade. After all, progression and learning is most important. Then you could look at it and come up with a grade based on their achievement/progression after several weeks. There really is a wide range of ways to grade this type of thing, but I don't think it is necessarily something you have to grade.

For the challenge problems, my students earned stickers for a chart which they could feel good about and could also be rewarded if they had done a particularly good job that quarter (based on level). However, I don't know that this was even needed because just the fact that a particular student actually got the challenge problem (not many kids usually get it each week) was enough to make them so proud. I also would usually let them show how they thought about it and solved it on that Friday. Pretty much all of my students got better at the challenge problems-at least in how to approach them, they just didn't always get them right-after all they are challenging and are meant to challenge the students in your class that need that challenge. Most of them would work very hard through the week to try and get it though which was nice to see!

Hope this helps- I tend to get carried away with my explanations sometimes, so hopefully I helped you. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask. I am more than willing to give you some guidance.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for 7 years and have absolutely loved it! I started by teaching three years in fifth grade. My third year, I taught all of the fifth grade math which was nice because math is the subject I am most passionate about. Then, our school lost a bunch of teachers due to budgeting and I just had enough years to stay at my dream school-just in a different grade. I am now in my sixth year of third grade and love it just as much as I loved fifth grade (kids are kids). The best part about teaching is waking up and actually wanting to go to my job everyday!

MY TEACHING STYLE

Whatever works best for the students!!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT
