Thank you for visiting my store: Trekking Through Third Grade
I hope you will find this product useful in your classroom. I am adding this as a word document so that you can customize it to your classroom needs. Feel free to change what you need to in order to make it fit the needs of your students and your curriculum. I created this based off of what my students needed this past year. All content is based off 3rd grade Common Core Standards for math. However, it does not cover all standards. There is not a lot included on 3.0A.9. (Patterns), 3.NF.2 (Fractions on a number line), and 3.MD.4 (Measure to nearest ½ and ¼ inch and making a line plot). There are no problems based on standards 3.MD.3 (Picture graphs and bar graphs). I usually would put a picture or bar graph problem on the projector board every couple weeks that they would complete in addition to their weekly sheet.
This packet contains 36 weeks of math warm-ups or math morning work on one weekly page. It can also be used as homework. The contents section will tell you the concepts you will find for each week, as well as which concepts included are new for that week. Most of the weeks add in previous concepts, but there are a few weeks with only one or two concepts (when addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division are introduced). I wanted to make sure my own students had a lot of extra practice with just those concepts too. The first 13 weeks are mostly skills based with some word problems. Weeks 14-31 follow the same format: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday consist of a word problem and then steps to complete the word problem (key words/information, question, strategy, and solve and check boxes). I wanted to make sure my students really knew the steps to solving a word problem. Tuesday and Thursday provide a mostly skills based review. Weeks 31-36 are mainly word problems. I wanted my students to have a lot of practice right before we began end of year testing.
In my classroom, students completed the problems individually for morning-work. Then, they discussed answers as a group until they all agreed on an answer. Afterwards, we would go over any misconceptions as a class. You could also collect and grade it as an assessment or complete as a class.
There is a blank template at the end if you would like to create some of your own. Again, the best teachers adapt instruction based on student needs, so please change it to make it work in your classroom if you need to!
