The following pages are designed to provide daily review of third grade level math concepts in a special education setting. They are ideal for students who have partial mastery of the third grade curriculum. I complete the first couple of weeks as a group and observe areas for individual instruction.
Depending on student’s abilities, you may choose to start with a couple of boxes from each daily sheet and move towards increasing the number of problem types. Areas of weakness are taught as mini-lessons. The goal is to be able to complete the entire sheet. I have found my 5th grade special education students can do this independently by mid-year. We keep the skills fresh by using these sheets as a spiral review, perfect for after vacations and weekends when regression of skills is problematic.
I find it easiest to make a weekly packet with a coversheet. I date it for the students so it is easy to identify the current week’s daily work. I use the same 31 worksheets over and over until the skills are mastered. Due to the fact that a given week falls on different calendar dates, each weekly packet is different.
The students enjoy the familiar format but appreciate the variety of skills in each sheet. Additionally, it complements calendar math. Editable sheets are included to help teachers differentiate instruction and meet the needs of a variety of students.
