Math Daily 3 includes:

**Math by Myself**

**Math Writing**

**Math with Someone**

These are class sets:

Investigations’ games are for homework:

I store the small homework versions in baskets like this:

These are examples from my Just Add Dice Game pack for Valentine’s Day (I have them in my TpT shop for all seasons!)

Math Writing is the time when kids express and articulate their thinking and understanding by working on a particular math problem or concept through pictures, numbers, words, or creating problems of their own. I expect my kids to explain their reasoning…I use this Data Board for my Math Journaling in the morning from my Math Question of the Day Pack:

Here are some resources I created to help me get started this year!

Great post! I love the geo board packet! I am heading over to get it now:)

Love your confessional… I, too, have struggled with the small group aspect of math time… Hopefully Math Daily 3 helps with that! Thanks for the freebies! Also, I used your geoboard pack last year and my kiddos loved it! They loved trying to copy the pictures on the little task cards. So fun! 🙂

I love your confessions. I will be teaching first for the first time this year, so here is my question, I read the original daily five a few years ago and implemented it in my class. Is the second edition worth the purchase? I am following the study but am torn about buying the book. I am going to check out your geoboard pack…. Thanks!

In my opinion, it is worth buying. The amount of flexibility with the 2nd edition was refreshing. I never bought into ALL of the first Daily 5 book….but this edition makes it easier for me to see myself doing most of it. I am pretty sure they offer digital downloads on Amazon for less than the book copy =)

definitely buy the book!

Yes, I made lots of adaptations with my third graders. Thanks for the reply

Thanks so much for sharing. I have a question not related to the topic… 🙂 Would you please share where you purchased the boxes with the blue lids in your second picture. They look like they are half the size of regular shoebox containers. Thanks so much!

Great post. I am just wrapping up the new edition of The Daily Five and I was so excited to get to the math chapter. You did a great job explaining it. I will certainly check out your question of the day packet, since daily math writing is not something I currently use with my kids.

Thanks for the freebies as well. They will be very helpful when I try this format with my class during the upcoming school year.

I look forward to reading more about how the Math Daily 3 is working in your classroom.

I love all of these ideas! I want am now thinking of ways to adapt this in my third grade classroom! I especially love the math writing center with the question of the day! 🙂 Thanks for the inspiration! <3

Is the 1st edition worth buying or should I just get the second edition?

I would buy the second edition…and if you needed/wanted more info about the original, I would see if a teaching buddy has it and just borrow it from them =)

I am not sure if anyone has them, let me ask our 2nd grade teachers to give me a copy of what I need and I am sure I can get something together for a 2nd grade version before school starts =)

Thank you for your insights on Math Daily 3! I will be incorporating this in the Fall (so of course I have been thinking about it all summer).
