Not all math curriculum is awful. Just sum. Ba-da-bum!

But when it is bad, it is very, very bad. And unfortunately, a lot of traditional math curriculum is very, very bad. It’s overly complex, too long, impossible to differentiate, difficult to manage, and, frankly, not much fun. It can be hard to wade through all the extras and find the most valuable parts of the lesson. You don’t have time to read dozens of pages in the teacher manual and there are way too many different pieces to prep. Ugh!

If that sounds like your math curriculum, you’re in luck. Because now you have an alternative that is very, very good. A math curriculum that you and your students will LOVE!

Our Third Grade Math Units were designed to be teacher and student-friendly. Think of them as your one-stop shop for math lessons that are fun, engaging, and easy to prep.

These comprehensive units have everything you need to teach all of the third-grade standards.

Each ready to teach unit comes with instructional PowerPoints for each mini-lesson, daily student activities that are effective and engaging, key vocabulary, task cards, a math game, anchor charts, problems sets and homework, complete lesson plans, helpful resources like, interactive notebook pages, number lines, and more! There’s no reason to look anywhere else.

This Third Grade Fractions Unit is the Seventh Unit in our third-grade math curriculum. It includes 30 days of complete lessons on unit fractions, fractions on a number line, fractions equal to a whole, fractions greater than a whole, whole number fractions, equivalent fractions, comparing fractions with like denominators, comparing fractions with like numerators, and word problems involving fractions. And at just $1.25 per day, this no-prep unit is quite the deal! Even if you already have a math curriculum, this unit will save you tons of time and headaches and will make teaching math so much more fun.
