Knowing where you plan to go for the year helps you get started on the right foot for the school year ahead. This Long Range Plan is meant as a guide to help you layout your Math program for a Grade 3 classroom in Ontario. The strands are appropriately distributed in order to cover the requirements for the Reporting periods.
The layout of this Long Range Plan will correspond with future Long Range Plans posted for other grade levels so that similar strands and expectations are covered at the same time in order to assist with making split-grade teaching more manageable.
The following items are included in this Long Range Plan:
- Ontario curriculum expectations for Grade 3
- Corresponding Big Ideas (from Dr. Marian Small)
- Suggested Read-Alouds for every month and strand that help to solidify Math concepts taught
- Example open-ended questions for each strand that naturally differentiate for your varied learners and provide great discussion questions or 'Minds-On' problems for a 3-part Math lesson
