If you're a third grade teacher, usually your first lesson {Go Math Third Grade Chapter 1, Lesson 1.} is a review of the Commutative Property of Addition. I created a set of 24 task cards to use as a spiral review for third grade Go Math teachers teaching Lesson 1.1 to use during the first month of school. Many teachers are working on procedures and routines during the first couple of weeks, students are moving in and moving out of your classroom and maybe your school has hired a new teacher to create smaller classrooms. No matter what, I think you can agree that the first week is crazy hectic. So I liked to have many resources for later in the month to review and revisit the many math skills I had to cover the first week.
