My college students at all times want further follow with multiplication, so this 12 months I believed I’d give them the present of multiplication for the vacations!
Alright, so it will not be a very present, and it will not be one which they are going to actually scream with delight over, however it would positively give them some follow on their multiplication! When it’s full, it would additionally make an cute hallway show!
I made a decision I used to be going to provide the present of multiplication by giving every youngster a sq. piece of white card inventory and coloured bows and ribbons that I had copied on the copy machine with development paper. Then, I had college students draw out of a hat multiplication equations that they wanted to finish. After they constructed their present of multiplication – gluing the bow on high, crossing the ribbon on the sq. card inventory to type 4 equal containers, and writing their multiplication quantity within the center the place the ribbons crossed, I had them start their multiplication methods.
In every field, they wanted to symbolize the multiplication equation they got. In a single field they may symbolize it utilizing repeated addition; in one other field, they may symbolize it utilizing equal teams; in one more field, they may symbolize it utilizing an array; and eventually, within the final field, they may symbolize it utilizing skip counting (we use quantity strains to symbolize that).
They ended up being cute! It was nice follow, and lots of college students did multiple present of multiplication!

GRAB YOUR FREEBIE!
