What is this product?:
The product I have created is a continuation of the Go Math Curriculum for 3rd grade.
This particular product focuses on Chapter 10 Time, Length, Liquid, Volume, & Mass.
In the document you will find 2 pages for each lesson. The first page will be labeled "Guided", this is for you to guide your students through the lesson questions. The second page is labeled "Independent", the questions will be the SAME but with different numbers. This is a great page to see where students might be falling short of the skill being taught. You can also use this page as a formative assessment.
How to use this product in your classroom?:
I use this product through math centers or station rotations. However, you could use this product for extra practice, reinforcement, or even homework.
* I have my class split into 3 groups high (green), middle (blue), and my low (orange).
I first start my teaching with a mini lesson. This is typically 5-10 minutes. I teach the skill to the entire class. Once I have previewed this skill my students break off into their groups.
Rotation 1: 15 minutes
Blue (middle) meets at teacher with their packet
Orange (low) works on previously learned skills in a bucket I have set up
Green (high) works on book work from the lesson
Rotation 2: 15 minutes
Blue (middle) works on book work from the lesson
Orange (low) meets at teacher with their packet
Green (high) works on previously learned skills in a bucket I have set up
Rotation 3: 15 minutes
Blue (middle) works on previously learned skills in a bucket I have set up
Orange (low) works on book work from the lesson
Green (high) meets at teacher with their packet
Ending: 15 minutes
I finish the lesson by having all students come back to their seat and quickly review the new skill that was being taught. This is also a great time to give an exit slip.
What are the common core standards?:
This product covers the following common core standards:
Tell and write time to the nearest minute and measure time intervals in minutes. Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of time intervals in minutes, e.g., by representing the problem on a number line diagram.
Measure and estimate liquid volumes and masses of objects using standard units of grams (g), kilograms (kg), and liters (l).1 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.2
Generate measurement data by measuring lengths using rulers marked with halves and fourths of an inch. Show the data by making a line plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in appropriate units— whole numbers, halves, or quarters.
