This resource is a unique way to get your students warmed up in the morning. The Math is aligned to 3rd grade Common Core Standards and intended to be a review. If you teach 4th grade, this might also work for you depending on your students’ needs. (We do have a 4th grade version!)

This set contains 5 weeks of thematic Math morning work for the month of April. The problems are thematic around Spring & Earth Day during Week 3. The morning work is focused on Math with a sprinkle of Science, a pinch of grammar, and a dash of Daily/Weekly Updates to keep your students engaged and open doors for conversations. Each week follows the same routine. The focus for each day was created based on fundamental needs I noticed in my classroom of 3rd graders: Multiplication & Division, Number Sense, & Fractions (including Fractions & Decimals) While these are not the only areas addressed, they are the main focus. Each week follows the same routine and structure.

*Multiplication Monday- Problems are centered around Multiplication.

*Base Ten Tuesday- All about the Base of our Number System. These problems are centered around our number system and place value.

*Wordless Wednesday- No Word Problems! Students have 3 problems without words.

*Throwback Thursday- Review Day! Other days may offer a review problem, but Thursdays have problems that may come from 2nd grade or the beginning of the year. I also added problems from other standards such as Measurement, Data, and Geometry. There is also a short paragraph in which students Box the Verbs, Circle the adjectives, and Underline the nouns. There may also be a short sentence or paragraph in which students edit the sentence or answer a question after reading a short paragraph related to Social Studies or Science.

*Fraction Fun Friday- Nothing says Fun Friday like Fractions! There is always a need to review fractions. By keeping it short, sweet and including a fun personal question, this may help build your students’ confidence in fractions while also keeping it fresh.

I created this resource in my 3rd grade classroom because I saw a need to continuously review these key areas. By following this same structure each week, students know what to expect while they are also building their confidence in these essential math areas. I have also found several other benefits from this morning work routine:

*Routine!-My students knew exactly what to do when they come in the classroom. Also, if I needed a few extra minutes due to meetings or other housekeeping duties, I knew my students were spending that time working on essential math skills, not just “busy work.” The morning work is meant to be short and sweet, skill practice, plus engaging.

*Short & Sweet- There are only a few problems so it shouldn’t take longer than 10 minutes. This will also let you know if students are still having difficulty with a certain skill.

*Fewer Copies- Only one sheet of paper for the whole week! (Copy front and back)

*A Weekly Grade-My students know this and do not want to do the work for homework or have a poor grade. This helped get them started right away in the morning. I also go over the problems each morning and allowed students to fix their work before turning it in. In my opinion, this is beneficial because it keeps the students engaged as we go over it, ESPECIALLY if they had difficulty with it. This was also beneficial for students because if the paid attention and “added on to their thinking,” they can earn a good grade that will be added weekly. For students that already struggle, this is confidence building and motivating.

You can expect May to come soon! I hope this resource works for you! Please be sure to follow us so you get the email when the rest of this series comes out! As we continue to work on the rest of this series, we would love to hear what works for you.
