Subtraction for 3rd is a result of years of frustration with publishers' materials that did not and currently do not fit the needs of all of my students. This unit especially correlates with the textbook Math Connects by Macmillan McGraw-Hill grade 3 chapter 3, but it can be a great addition to any third grade math curriculum. The lesson sheets are designed to be appealing to third graders who are making that big jump from second grade math to the more challenging third grade math. The print is larger than publishers to help with students who have vision or tracking issues. The directions are easily read and there are cute owl reminders to help third graders develop the study skills of looking over their work, and paying attention to details. Third grade is a big transition year for this skill and they often need some helpful hints.
This unit covers the common core subtraction of third grade--regrouping to thousands, rounding and estimating, reasonable answers, and the ever challenging subtracting across zeros.
