Third Grade Worksheets Give Kids an Academic BoostThe move to third grade can be intimidating for youngsters, as concepts in all subjects become more complicated and they’re asked to learn more independently than in the past. A good way to ease the transition and ensure your child remains on the right academic path is to print out our third grade worksheets. Not only will you find dozens of activities for every subject and skill level, but many of those activities feature amusing illustrations and cool games, making study and practice time a lot more tolerable. Because there is so much variety in these worksheets, it might be best to start by identifying the subjects in which your child is most deficient and have her target those areas first. If you start to sense frustration, though, shift gears and give her a confidence boost by having her complete worksheets in subjects where she’s most proficient. Along the way, be your kid’s biggest cheerleader. Congratulate her when she successfully finishes a difficult exercise, and encourage her to keep plugging away if she hits a speed bump. After all, when it comes to learning at a young age, a little positive reinforcement goes a long way.
Free Printable Math Worksheets for Grade 3
This is a comprehensive collection of math worksheets for grade 3, organized by topics such as addition, subtraction, mental math, regrouping, place value, multiplication, division, clock, money, measuring, and geometry. They are randomly generated, printable from your browser, and include the answer key. The worksheets support any third grade math program, but pair well with the Grade 3 IXL Math Workbook.
The worksheets are randomly generated each time you click on the links below. You can also get a new, different one just by refreshing the page in your browser (press F5).
You can print them directly from your browser window, but first check how it looks like in the "Print Preview". If the worksheet does not fit the page, adjust the margins, header, and footer in the Page Setup settings of your browser. Another option is to adjust the "scale" to 95% or 90% in the Print Preview. Some browsers and printers have "Print to fit" option, which will automatically scale the worksheet to fit the printable area.
All worksheets come with an answer key placed on the 2nd page of the file.

I believe in a method I call structured drilling of the multiplication tables. It is not random at first, but students practice the tables based on the patterns in the tables — and (VERY IMPORTANT) they practice the tables "backwards" also. Worksheets can be used for random drilling after the initial stage of structured drilling.

Converting between measuring units is not included in the Common Core Standards for 3rd grade, so these are completely optional.
The worksheets for changing mixed numbers to fractions or vice versa are optional, as it is not required the student be able to do these in 3rd grade without a visual model.
