### Guest: Adventures in 3rd Grade

Amber is my guest today. She has a wide variety of items on her website and a lot of freebies. She always seems to post just the thing that I didn't know I needed but do!

Hey Friends! Well, I know some of you might not know me yet, but I consider everyone that is part of this community a friend! I'm Amber from Adventures of a Third Grade Teacher.

Here is an example of a Math Lesson you can download for free at my TPT Shop!

Vocabulary: I use a Frayer Model to help my kids with vocabulary

Where do you think we put our vocabulary words? You guessed it! Our Math Notebooks! A lot of the time we do these together, or they work in groups. The students define, draw a picture or list characteristics, show an example and a non-example. It is so much more useful than just writing a definition and drawing a picture.

Math Workshop/ Centers/Balanced Active Math: They are all kind of the same thing, just called a million different things. I don't do it everyday,. maybe once or twice a week The students might do all of the activities, or just some of them. This is how I set it up. I used to have students rotate through centers, but it was so frustrating when students took longer in one center than planned, or finished in 3 seconds. So, I started letting students do it at their own pace. They are usually assigned to work with their math partner or a small group. They choose what they do and in what order. If there is a specific thing that I want them to have done, I just make sure they get it done. It sounds crazy, but it really isn't! The students might work on vocabulary, play math games, work with the teacher, use manipulatives to solve problems. The ideas are endless. I found this awesome Math Workshop board on Pinterest that I definitely want to have in my classroom next year.

I think I would just have my students place their name on whatever activity they are doing.

I promised freebies, so here are some freebies you could use during Math Workshop, or during your regular Math Instruction. I was going to list all of my Freebies, but I decided to just give you guys the link to my store, because I have a TON of math freebies! Games, Foldables, and Printables!

And a BRAND NEW FREEBIE Just for you guys! A Great Activity to do whole group or in Math Workshop or Centers!

Thanks for reading! I hope you found something you can implement with your kiddos! :)
