Please take a moment to view the "Preview" to see why I call this set "DELUXE." Feel free to print the FREE file, and start using the pages in your classroom.

You will see that along with "I Can" statements, I have emphasized relevant vocabulary words and added examples, strategies, and explanations to help children truly feel that they CAN achieve these expectations. I have also chosen an easy-to-read font and lively illustrations to make print-outs as 3rd-grade friendly as possible. Each poster is a full page to maximize your options. Choose to print 2 per page or 4 per page for smaller versions.

These standards posters include full-color and black-and-white versions. I recommend projecting full-color versions as you introduce lessons. Refer to them on your standards wall, word wall, or centers as you review concepts. Give children black-and-white versions. Ask them to highlight important concepts. Punch holes in them, and place them in binders or folders. Alternatively, use them as covers for each section of student notebooks.

The preview features the following standards:


Determine the unknown whole number in a multiplication or division equation relating three whole numbers. For example, determine the unknown number that makes the equation true in each of the equations 8 × ? = 48, 5 = _ ÷ 3, 6 × 6 = ?

Along with the "I can" statement, you will get 3 examples, plus strategies and explanations. In addition, I've included a poster that introduces the term "variable."

2. 3.OA.D.9 Identify arithmetic patterns (including patterns in the addition table or multiplication table), and explain them using properties of operations. For example, observe that 4 times a number is always even, and explain why 4 times a number can be decomposed into two equal addends.

For this standard, I've included examples of high-level explanations using a hundreds chart, an addition chart, and a multiplication chart. Feel free to use my free charts in your classroom!


Measure and estimate liquid volumes and masses of objects using standard units of grams (g), kilograms (kg), and liters (l). Add, subtract, multiply, or divide to solve one-step word problems involving masses or volumes that are given in the same units, e.g., by using drawings (such as a beaker with a measurement scale) to represent the problem.

I've included a poster showing illustrations of each measurement in this preview freebie. The product contains an example of an equation as well.

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Partition shapes into parts with equal areas. Express the area of each part as a unit fraction of the whole. For example, partition a shape into 4 parts with equal area, and describe the area of each part as 1/4 of the area of the shape.
Understand that shapes in different categories (e.g., rhombuses, rectangles, and others) may share attributes (e.g., having four sides), and that the shared attributes can define a larger category (e.g., quadrilaterals). Recognize rhombuses, rectangles, and squares as examples of quadrilaterals, and draw examples of quadrilaterals that do not belong to any of these subcategories.
Compare two fractions with the same numerator or the same denominator by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
Express whole numbers as fractions, and recognize fractions that are equivalent to whole numbers. Examples: Express 3 in the form 3 = 3/1; recognize that 6/1 = 6; locate 4/4 and 1 at the same point of a number line diagram.
Recognize and generate simple equivalent fractions, (e.g., 1/2 = 2/4, 4/6 = 2/3). Explain why the fractions are equivalent, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
