This 3rd Grade Morning Work collection consists of a real life problem for each day of the first 12 weeks of school! The problems require students to think critically, applying mathematical skills learned throughout the school year. A poster is included, which reminds students to THINK about effective problem solving strategies, SHOW their answers, AND SOLVE the problem:
THINK: What am I to figure out in this problem? How can I use the information I'm given to solve the problem? How many steps will it take before I get to the answer? What strategy can I use to solve the problem?
SHOW: Write my thinking and strategies for solving the problem in the white space.
SOLVE: Once I've shown my work, write the answer(s).
The First 12 Weeks Set includes problems that require application of skills with mixed operations, multi-step problem solving, and critical thinking. Morning Math may be used as a starter for students arriving to class, as an independent assignment after work is complete, as a problem solving center activity, or for a whole class activity.
