I have some students that are far and above the rest of the class. I am struggling with what to do with them. We are about ready to head into our multiplication and division chapters, which I do not think the students need. Does anyone have any resources or ideas for how I can differentiate for these kids? Thanks!

If you're in 3rd, then yes, all your students need the multiplication and division chapters. Multiplication is a huge 3rd-grade standard. You don't want them to miss the "why" and "how" of it. I would look for ways to have them reinforce and enrich their skill once they finish the regular work correctly. So, have some sort of math games or enrichment worksheets available. There are a lot on the web. Also, they could write multiplication word problems, trade and solve, or present to the class (if they're at the whole-class level).

I agree, they all need these chapters. You can put together some problem solving activities or games for them to use to enrich. Have you looked at this site for ideas?

Have you tried Front Row Ed? It's a free standards-based math program that's adaptive and there's a diagnostic for each domain. It's very easy to set up and get going. Once your advanced students show they know the lesson for the day, they can work at their own pace on Front Row.
