Finding daily math practice that 3rd graders can complete independently is a struggle. Different curriculums practice different skills at a different times. Often, daily math practice or morning work will expect students to have prior knowledge that they don’t have. This is frustrating to both students and teachers!
3rd Grade Morning Work Sample
This daily math practice/morning work for 3rd grade is scaffolded to help students be successful even if they do not have prior knowledge on a certain math skill. Download 5 days worth of math practice for free here.
This free sample is designed to be used at the very beginning of 3rd grade. It starts off easy with plenty of scaffolding, and then gets a little more challenging as the week progresses. Every day, students will practice patterning, using a number line to solve addition problems, dividing shapes into halves and thirds, be introduced to perimeter, build a solid understanding of triangles, and complete a challenge question.

If you are a 3rd grade teaching looking for daily math practice or morning work that your students will be able to complete independently while still learning, then you will love this year long morning work/daily math practice resource for 3rd grade. Every day, students will answer a question from each of the following domains:
- Operations and Algebraic Thinking
- Number and Operations in Base 10
- Number and Operations – Fractions
- Measurement and Data
The questions are geared towards the 3rd grade common core standards, but if your students need additional, independent practice with any of the domains above, they will benefit. Every week, students will practice a different skill, building on the previous week. At the beginning of the week, students are given plenty of scaffolding to help them be successful. Towards the end of the week, the scaffolding is removed.
Other teachers have found this resource very helpful for teaching inferencing to their upper elementary students.
One teacher said, "This is the best money I think I have every spent on TPT!!! I have found that doing this daily activity with the students has shown not only their growth over the year but I find that it also is a continuous spiral (which as we all know is hard to do!) and it also sometimes pre-teaches things before you even cover it in your lessons, therefore making it SUPER easy for the kids when you do get to the lessons/assessments. Best money you will spend!"
