•Multiply two digits by two digits using the Box Method
- Students fill in all numbers to solve the problem on each card
- Shows developing and mastery of the Box Method for multiplication
These cards provide excellent practice for 4th grade students, as well as a great review for 5th grade math and enhancement for 3rd grade students. They are a great way to check the understanding and mastery of the skills!
- 40 Task Cards for classroom use after the concept has been taught.
- Gives students extra practice in order to enhance mastery of the skill.
- Ideas for use in the classroom:
- Whole group challenge by having students respond to each task card on individual dry erase boards. Whole group “Scoot” activity: Give students a specified amount of time to complete the card in front of them. Set timer. When timer sounds, each student moves to another seat to complete a new card. Continue until all cards have been completed by all students. *This may be fun for the students, but it will give the teacher a better idea as to how many students have mastered the skill well enough to complete the tasks correctly in a specified amount of time.
- Small group use in centers
- Individual practice for students when they have finished their classwork early.
- These are especially handy when single hole punched in a corner and stored on a book ring! I put mine in sets of 10 so students can quickly finish a set when they have a few minutes after a test or after finishing an assignment.
- Teacher instructions on how to use:
- Print (For best results, print on white cardstock paper!)
- Cut into individual cards and Laminate!
Student response sheet and teacher answer key included!
