First one looks like wild violet or some kind of violet. Second lone looks like some kind of strawberry. I can't tell the third one. Chicory? plantain? Something with a tap root?

Hey victor welcome. If you add your location to your signature then everyone will have a better idea of plant possibilities in your neck of the woods.
My guesses are
1. Wild violet
2. If it flowers Yellow it Is probably mock strawberry. If it flowers white it could be a wild strawberry or some domestic type. If it is still really wintery I guess mock as it tends to stay more active than strawberries when it is winter.
3. Maybe yellow dock or poke weed it's hard to tell, I don't think pokeweed gets started as early as dock.

Just by chance I came across this article. No.1 could also be Garlic Mustard.

Yeah good catch chris. If the first has not bloomed by now it's probably g mustard. My wild violets are blooming beautifully right now.
