PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Use this student booklet to explore and solidify the concept of using multiplication to solve repeated addition number sentences in a fun way!

This booklet is a fresh take on one of the four ways that I introduce multiplication to my second graders. We spend a lot of time exploring, and really solidifying their conceptual understanding of multiplication. The booklet begins by scaffolding the learning with examples, and gradually releases more of the responsibility to the students.

Make a book for each student, or one for whole class guided practice. It could be used as an introduction to multiplication, a quick assessment, a daily warm-up before your math time, or as a review. Please enjoy.

For another fun, multiplication activity, see my "Multiplication Around The Room" packet HERE.

This is such a sweet and engaging way to teach and practice multiplication! While some of my sweet second graders aren't quite ready for this skill, many are, and this is a great way for me to let them work beyond grade level without a great deal of involvement from me. They love to be independent, and this will be just the ticket! (My FB username is Sarah Plumitallo.)
