Thank you for your interest in this resource. These activities are meant to be extension or early finisher activities during your math block.
This resource includes:
I taught advanced third grade math for a few years, and learned quickly that I needed to have these types of activities ready to go. They can be used for your high flyers in the general education setting or in a gifted classroom.
I have included the SCAMPER activity (in the presentation) if you want to model the lesson first. You may download the SCAMPER in PDF form as well.
The journal entries are an excellent way to gauge understanding of the skills and concepts. I would have the journal prompt on the board at the beginning of class.
I have added a math word problem annotation bookmark. This encourages students to slow down (and show their work) when solving multi-step word problems. I would make copies of the bookmarks so students could mark on them. They would turn in the bookmarks with the solved problems. You can also print them on cardstock and laminate them.
