Third Grade 2016-2017 Resources:

NOTE: Please pay special attention to all footnotes in the standards, as they provide important information regarding the standards. For example, in 3rd grade, there is a footnote for GSE3.OA.8, "This standard is limited to problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers; students should know how to perform operations in the conventional order where there are no parentheses to specify a particular order (Order of Operations)." If this footnote is overlooked, students would be missing an important understanding when they enter 4th grade. (Many thanks to Kristine Lonsford of Walker County for pointing out the importance of attending to the footnotes!)
Many thanks to Denise Bringslid, APS, for sharing this article:

Differentiation in the math classroom:

This document aligns each frameworks task to other reputable resources and is very useful for differentiation.
Suggestions for usage are:
  1. Remediation
  2. Previewing a concept
  3. Scaffolding a task
  4. For Title/EIP/SpEd pullout
  5. Centers/Stations
(Many thanks to Jenise Sexton for sharing her work!)
