Are there any 3rd grade teachers that are currently using Daily 5 Math or Math Workshop in their classroom? I would like to start it this year. I've been doing Daily 5/Cafe for the past 2 years. I'm looking for what to put out for math tools and math game ideas.

I am planning on having a short MATH facts time every day.

At the beginning of the year, we'll focus on addition but most of the year, it will be multiplication. They will just have one choice "round" per day. Then, we'll move into our 50 minute math workshop.

My MATH time is low maintenance. Math tools I plan on using: triangle flash cards, calculators, Marcy Cook math tiles, cuisenaire rods and grid paper for arrays.
