A product to ease the stress of trying to memorize the process of 2-digit by 2-digit multiplication. This catchy poem/song will help your students get through and learn with confidence!
Recite poem aloud with your students, strongly encouraging them to use their feet and/or hands to act out the motions described. After reciting a few times, use with an example.
I strongly encourage you to visit my store and find the power point presentation that accompanies this rhyme! It uses arrows and color coordinated clues to really walk through each problem step by step exactly the way they are described in this rhyme!
By the end of our unit on multiplication, my students were rhyming, and using their body motions to help them multiply. This activity will appeal to all kinds of diverse learners in your classroom!
