This is a BUNDLE of my 3rd Grade Guided Math Units. There are a total of 15 units.
Lesson plans are standards based and have a specific, achievable objective for each day. Units include pre and post assessments, daily practice pages, daily extension activities, vocabulary cards, questioning cards, posters, and additional resources to support your instruction.
⚠️These units are aligned to Common Core. For a complete breakdown of which standards are covered in each unit across grades 1-5, download this free Common Core alignment Guide!
⚠️TEKS Teachers: Download the preview to see what TEKS standards correlate to this bundle! Each unit is given as 2 PDF’s–one for Common Core and one for TEKS. You can also check out this free download for a breakdown of the TEKS covered.
These units are independent of each other and can be taught out of order. So, if you have to follow a pacing guide from your district, you can change the order.
3rd Grade Guided Math units are recommended for small group, targeted instruction, but also can be used in a whole group format.

There are a total of 32 weeks of instruction provided. I broke this up into four quarters, with 8 weeks per quarter. If you are in a traditional school that will give you an extra week each quarter for review, test prep, or to use as a buffer (because we all know interruptions happen).
