3rd-Grade Lesson Plans

As a teacher, you’re more than likely going to require time away from the classroom — albeit personal illness, a family emergency, or perhaps for a field trip. For 3rd-grade teachers, planning for a substitute can be a challenge.

Daybreak Lesson Plans makes it simple to purchase lesson plans for 3rd-grade students that (a) align to current standards, (b) are simple for the substitute teacher to read and deliver, and (c) eliminate the frustration of prepping for a sub.

Comprehensive List of 3rd-Grade Lesson Plans by Subject

We have a comprehensive list of lesson plans for 3rd-graders that align with Common Core standards. These include:

  • 3rd-grade math lesson plans
  • 3rd-grade science lesson plans
  • 3rd-grade language arts lesson plans

Lesson plans are divided into half-day units or one-hour segments, and you can create a custom “a la carte” lesson plan for any subject to cover an entire day. Daybreak Lesson Plans also offers games and activities to supplement classroom learning. These can be beneficial not only for subs, but also for young teachers who may not have an arsenal of activites and/or educational games on hand.

Benefits of Our 3rd-Grade Lesson Plans for Common Core

With our quality and engaging lesson plans, you can ensure that your students are gaining instruction in line with Common Core’s updated standards. These lesson plans are fully scripted — meaning they are useable by even the most inexperienced of substitutes, yet the standards-based instruction makes them viable for experienced teachers who serve as subs, too. All lessons are written by teachers for teachers, so regular classroom teachers can be confident that substitutes will have everything they need to ensure students are learning.
