Giggle Facts
The Giggle Facts
Math Program helps
3rd Grade students master their Addition and Subtraction Facts,
and helps kids have an easier time learning many of the other Grade 3
math concepts described on this page that they will encounter in Third Grade.

You
will notice that many math concepts and math skills repeat over the Kindergarten, 1st
Grade, Second Grade and 3rd Grade levels. This is due to the fact that math
concepts build on each other grade by grade.




Math Facts: Addition and Subtraction


Adding and Subtracting Larger
Numbers



Giggle Facts
is Great for Third Graders!


Addition and Subtraction Math
Facts will be reviewed in Third Grade. Students will be expected
to have a very good understanding of their Addition and Subtraction Facts at this stage.
Addition and Subtraction Math Facts should be mastered by the start of the 3rd
Grade. Students should now know Math Fact Addition strategies
such as “Doubles” (6+6 or 4+4), “Turnarounds” (2+7 = 7+2), “Near
Doubles”, “Almost Doubles” or “Doubles Plus 1” (6+6+12,
so 6+7= one more, or 13).


ThirdGraders will continue to add
and subtract larger numbers (ex: 2digit numbers such as 456+192, or 725581).
More than one Math method may be taught to solve these problems, including Mental Math.



Third Grade children need to spend time at home if they have not yet mastered
their Math Facts. Giggle Facts reinforces the math strategies taught in 3rd grade classrooms,
and incorporates many others as well.
For some Grade 3 children,
the transition to adding and subtracting larger numbers can be difficult.
Giggle Facts helps third
grade students by giving them lots of fun practice with Math Facts, which eases the transition to working with larger numbers.


Math Facts  Multiplication and
Division


Skip Counting and Using a Hundreds Board



Instant
Recall of Math Facts is IMPERATIVE to Learning HigherLevel
Math Concepts in 3rd Grade. Read What Researchers Have to Say...


Students
in Third Grade will continue working on their Multiplication and Division Facts.
They will continue to use vocabulary such as 'Product' (answer to a multiplication question), 'Quotient'
(answer to a division question), Remainders, Fact Families, etc. They will also be placing
objects into equal groups, displaying numbers in arrays, and creating number stories. This
will extend into the memorization of the easier Multiplication Facts first, then to the more difficult Multiplication
Facts. They will also relate Multiplication to Division.


Students in Third Grade will be expected to know how to skip count
by 2s, 5s, and 10s (ex: 2,4, 6, 8, or 5, 10, 15, 20). They may begin skip counting by
other numbers such as 3,4,6,7,8 and 9 as preparation for Multiplication.



The math knowledge and number sense that Third
Grade students gain through the Giggle Facts math program will help them understand Multiplication and Division
Fact Families.
Giggle Facts
teaches Grade 3 children the relationship between numbers (Number Sense), which
in turn helps with math concepts such as skip counting, greater than / less than, before
/ after, odd and even numbers, etc.









Third Graders will continue to
count / add pennies, nickels, dimes, quarters, and dollar bills. They
will also continue working on the Math concept of making change. Children who know their
Addition and Subtraction Math Facts will, overall, have an easier time adding
/ counting money. Students who have an understanding of Subtraction
will have an easier time with making change.


Students in Grade 3 will learn
that each digit in larger numbers has a value, depending on its position in the number.
For example, in the number 52,478, the 5 is worth 5 “tenthousands” (or 50,000), the 2
is worth 2 “thousands” (or 2,000), the 4 is worth 4 “hundreds” (or 400), the 7 is worth 7 “tens”
(or 70), and the 8 is worth 8 “ones”, or simply 8.



Children
who have mastered their Addition and Subtraction Math Facts will have an easier time
adding and counting money, and learning how to make change. Giggle
Facts allows children
to develop their number sense, which makes skip counting with money easier.
Giggle
Facts
teaches students to break down larger numbers into their smaller components (tens and ones) through
two different math strategies. There is an Addition strategy named
“Teens”, and a Subtraction strategy named “More Teens”
in the Giggle Facts math program that supports the math concept of Place
Value.

Third Graders will have many
opportunities to measure in a variety of ways. Grade Three students will continue measuring
with standard units (ex: inches, feet, yards, and miles, or centimeters, decimeters, meters and kilometers), as well as temperature
in Fahrenheit and Celsius using a thermometer. They will also measure to the nearest ‘part’ of a unit, such as
measuring to the nearest ½ inch or ¼ inch, or to the nearest centimeter.


Telling time remains an important math skill
that students will continue to review in Third Grade. They will tell
time to the hour, halfhour, quarterhour, 5 minutes and 1 minute using both digital and analog clocks. They will also be
expected to know different ways to express the time, such as halfpast 3 and a quarterto 9. The
Math Concept of elapsed time will be reviewed.



The keen number sense that Third Grade
students will develop through the Giggle Facts math program will aid them in understanding the tricky math concept
of telling time.









Third Grade students will review
2dimensional shapes, and they will further explore 3D solids such as cones, cylinders, prisms, pyramids and spheres.


Students in Grade 3 will
extend their math knowledge about Lines, Line Segments, Parallel Lines, and Angles. They
will learn about Rays, End Points, and Intersecting Lines as well.

Fractional parts of a whole will be investigated in 3rd Grade Math (ex: the child
will see a circle, and will divide it into several equal parts like halves, thirds, fourths, sixths, etc.). Fractions
of a group will also be reviewed (ex: how to divide a class of 24 children into 6 equal groups).
Third Grade students will shade in parts of an object to show a specified fraction, and they will
continue to investigate equivalent fractions. ThirdGraders will also learn about Improper
Fractions and Mixed Fractions.


An image that is symmetrical is something that has two sides that are identical.
One side could be seen as a “mirror image” of the other side. 3rd Grade students
will have opportunities to look for symmetry in everyday objects, as well as create symmetrical patterns of their own.
They will determine whether certain objects or pictures display line symmetry, and the number of lines
of symmetry in those objects or pictures.

Students in Third Grade will continue learning
about different types of measuring, such as measuring the contents of a container (Capacity) and the Weight of small objects.
They will work with both the U.S. Customary Measuring System, and the Metric System. They will use
terms such as Cups, Pints, Quarts, Gallons, Liters, Ounces, Pounds, Tons, Grams and Kilograms. Some equivalent
measures will also be explored (ex: 2 Pints = 1 Quart). They may also be introduced to the math
concept of Volume for regular rectangular prisms.


Third Graders will continue to work on Perimeter and Area. For
example, they may measure the distance around their textbook, or use pattern blocks to “tile” a surface such as
their desk. They will also learn how to calculate the area and perimeter of objects or
pictures.
