They do! The last two images show two assessments. You can see the standard code in the center of the bottom. It doesn't have full verbiage from CCSS if that's what you're looking for. Thank you for looking and asking!

Hello!

We saw your freebie, and would love to put it up on TinyGrads.com as a free download there as well by our large community of teachers and parents.

Though our policy of no "external links" prevents us from "linking" to your TpT store directly, we'd love to give you credit, put your name and TpT ID picture up there, and use text to point our parents and teachers to your store where they might want to purchase your “for sale” items from there.

We thought this might be a great a way to give you a little “free advertising” and for our community of parents and teachers (and the children they teach) to be able to enjoy your work as well.

We'll take care of loading your freebie up there, all we need is your permission.

Hope you have a great day!

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Thanks!
Peter

Sharon L. re: 3rd Grade Common Core Math Assessments
our school expects our third graders to perform each standard from a story problem. They not only have to just add 3 digit numbers, they have to be able to determine in a story whether they need to add or subtract. Isn't this how the test is going to be?

I would think that the tests will be different in each state. I have made these assessments based on my understanding of the common core standards. Hopefully you're able to use this product still!

Being in grad school and working full-time I haven't had a chance to create activities that go along with other chapters like the Chapter 1. However, I do have Addition Turn-over Cards and Subtraction Turn-over cards that go perfectly with Chapter 2 and 3, as well as Scoot Review Games for Chapters 1, 2, and 3. I'm creating materials as I teach the chapters. So check back often! Thanks for your purchase!

My question was answered by reading the questions from other teachers. I too am very interested in more chapter for Math in Focus. I know you must be very busy and hope you will be able sometime in the future to create more chapter activities. I am in book B now but could use any of the chapters for continued review. Thanks for your time and effort.

Buyer re: Bright Polka Dot Classroom Set
Hi, Sami! I teach with Sarah at LBES. I was telling her how much I loved the new classroom set. It is awesome! However, it doesn't match my classroom. She said that if I messaged you, you may be able to do it in another color. Thanks fro considering this! ;-)
Just in case you can, I am adding my colors. I am NOT extremely picky about the exact shades or the patterns. My colors are blue, green and (a touch of) brown. Just to give sort of a frame of reference for the colors: If you Google Wikipedia list of colors, the green is close to Andoid or apple green and the blue is sort of like their blue sapphire.

I would be more than happy to get a set together for your classroom. If you would send me an email at sabaumann02@gmail.com, I will get back to you with some background options so you can choose the color scheme that works best for your classroom.
