Prior to "memorizing" multiplication facts, it is important for students to comprehend the relationship between skip counting, repeated addition, and multiplication. This activity provides your students with a multi-sensory approach to understanding those concepts.
In my classroom, I have the students highlight their own individual charts and make observations using them. As a whole class, we also mark the multiples together and record our observations about each chart. I then use their words and ideas to create resource charts that anchor their learning.
Included in this packet you'll find the following:
11 Highlighted Multiples Charts (2-12) to display in your classroom as a resource.
A black-lined master for students to highlight and record their own observations (I make these into individual books and use the one we create together as a class book).
A book cover for the student books.
A blank hundred chart.
