Product Description

NEW!  SWBAT identify/describe 2D shapes and 3D objects via their characteristics (i.e. sides, angles, vertices, parallel lines, bases etc.) This unit covers common polygon shapes such as quadrilaterals (i.e. rhombuses, trapezoids & more!) & 3D figures such as prisms, cylinders & pyramids.

Use these scaffolded math drills to teach and reinforce the fundamentals, or prep for test day.  Each printable begins with a mini-lesson followed by several Common Core designed, simulated test questions (including multi-part and open response). Drills contain tips to guide students, allowing you more time to work with struggling students.

Save 15% & boost math skills by purchasing the complete 3rd Grade Math Bundle!

THIS PRODUCT INCLUDES:

• 8 math drills, with 50+ math problems
• Mini-lessons at the top of each drill, with tips & scaffolding
• Unassisted version without tips & scaffolding

COVERS GEOMETRY COMMON CORE STATE STANDARDS FOR THIRD GRADE

Lessons include:

• Working with shapes’ attributes (i.e. sides, vertices, angles & parallel lines)
• Identifying simple polygons (i.e. quadrilaterals, pentagons, hexagons, octagons, etc) & their attributes
• Describing common quadrilaterals (i.e. squares, rectangles, rhombuses, trapezoids) & their properties/categories
• Naming 3D objects (i.e. prisms, cylinders, cones, spheres) & characteristics (i.e. faces/bases, edges)

BASED ON STANDARDIZED TESTS, INCLUDING:

• Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC)
• Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC)
• Florida Standards Assessments (FSA)
• State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) Program / TEKS
• New York State (NYS) Testing Program
• Pennsylvania System of School Assessment (PSSA)
• Georgia Milestones Assessment System
• Virginia Standards of Learning (VA SOL)
• Each year, there are ~1-2 geometry problems on these tests.

USEFUL IN SO MANY WAYS!

All drills take 10 - 15 minutes to complete, and are terrific for:

• Guided or independent practice, after teaching the mini-lesson (no prep, just print & teach!)
• Math test prep
• Homework
• Math intervention groups / math circles /  partner work
• After-school programs & tutoring
• Math centers / self-learning  (includes answer keys)
• Morning or afternoon work (e.g. do now)
• Exit slips to assess skill mastery
• Summer vacation & bridge work / Summer school / Summer intervention programs
• Substitute teacher lesson plans / sick days

ALIGNED WITH 3RD GRADE COMMON CORE STATE STANDARDS

3.G.A.1:  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.
